It is steep! I think I saw there is a little hop on hop off bus which goes to the top. If you're reasoanbly fit you can get up no problem, the shops are a nice distraction and offer the chance to get your breath. Your reward is the cathedral and castle and amazing views.

Been up and down it a few times and keep noticing something new, well worth the effort but you need a good pair of lungs on you.

It is just a street, a pretty, cobbled stoned street though, with loads of small shops, tea rooms and pubs. Walk it from the shopping centre up to the old part of the city to really appreciate that it does exactly what it says on the street signs!

This part of old Lincoln is crammed with tea shops, little pubs, eateries and boutiques. It is a lovely part of the town to wander around and admire the old buildings and architecture. One piece of advise is to wear sensible and flat shoes. Not only is Steep hill very steep it is cobbled difficult to walk on in any... More

I often walk up and down this, it's nice to walk past all the little shops and have so many foreign tourists. It's a wonderful place, especially as you reach the top and see the castle.

Great experience though. I don't think we've walked up a street that's so steep. Lovely one off shops and views from the top looking down. Plenty of pit stops for a drink/something to eat

This is a fascinating street leading up to the castle and cathedral. It truly takes you back in time with the cobbles although fortunately you don't have to walk on them. The individual shops make for a pleasant change from the usual high street. The pie shop at the top gives you the incentive to walk up the hill if... More

This was our second visit to Lincoln but the first time we have braved the aptly-named Steep Hill. It is well worth it, not just for the lovely boutiques and tea rooms but also for the well-preserved buildings from various different eras that line the street. It IS steep, but we saw some brave parents with pushchairs who managed to... More

there is an equal number going down! It is what it is - a steep hill with cobbled ways, little shops and a couple of pubs en route and takes you from the cathedral/castle into the centre of Lincoln. Take your time and enjoy the buildings, the shops and the views whether you are going up or down!
