“Steep what?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

As the name suggests, its steep! But fun to go up and the shops and restaurants along the way are very nice and worth the trip.

“YOU HAVE TO BE FIT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

It really IS steep! I dread to think what it would be like coming DOWN the hill if it were icy weather, but hoorah, there are lots of interesting shops en route with a hand-rail. I'm sure these shops are there so one can pretend to be looking into shop windows rather than actually gasping for breath. Cobbles and a feeling of going back in time but in the nicest possible way. A great visit as long as you don't suffer from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or anything similar OR if you carry a portable oxygen tent.

“Lovely bit of old town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I regularly take a walk up the Steep Hill just because I love the tea rooms and old building and craft shops and little boutiques. It's just a lovely little bit of Lincoln!

“Worth the workout!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

We are regular visitors to Lincoln and always take in this street for its sheer cuteness. Worth a visit but ensure you're feeling physically fit. Neat shps en route include an old fashioned sweet shop, a gem/fossil shop and a very nice wine bar!

“Very interesting range of shops with charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

A lovely shopping area with some unique shops and a range of little tea rooms and other things to see. Bailgate which leads on from this continues the theme with some lovely restaurants too.
