In 2011 it was voted best street in Britain and well deserved. It is my favourite part of Lincoln. It truly is steep but well worth the effort of making your way up it. There are very old buildings with quaint shops and cafes. At the top you are rewarded when reaching one of the great buildings of Europe, Lincoln... More

We had parked our car on the lower level in Lincoln and after looking round the shops down there we decided to go up to the Cathedral and surrounding area. The best way to do it is to climb up the aptly named Steep Hill. There are some lovely shops along the way and a few tea shops too so... More

Surrounding area of Lincoln Cathedral and Castle. A cobble stone hill. Many quaint shops line this narrow street, seeling everything from wigs to food, art to beauty supplies. Stop for a cold pint and a pie at The Wig and Mitre pub on the way to The Castle! Well worth the steep hike!

Very steep, but full of little shops and tea rooms. We walked up and down 'steep hill' to get into the main town/shopping area as our hotel was at the top in the Minster. Lovely place, charming little streets with lovely little shops, full of history. Worth the walk.

I can confirm I walked up this beautiful street 4 times in 3 days and I must say it was not for the faint hearted. You must do it though because there are some lovely shops to see

It was great on the way down, browsing in the many interesting little shops, choosing a cafe (try the Bells, near the top) and admiring the lovely old buildings. However, the way back up, loaded with shopping bags, was another matter!

Wow Steep Hill lives up to its name - it really is very steep! Not for the elderly or unfit! What an amazing place - full of quaint tearooms, traditional restaurants, olde worlde pubs and lots of other quirky shops.There is a beautiful square at the top with the tourist information building and lots of benches to sit and take...
