....well, at least at a particular stretch. However railings are provided, although take care on a rainy day. Otherwise, a very nice street, with quaint shops and tea-rooms lining both sides. Love the ambience, and I am aware that colleagues often cover the stretch walking, running (weather permitting) as lunch-time exercise. Worth a walk (climb for some!) - and a... More

Very steep indeed but the climb is compensated by lots of interesting and quirky shops that are not typical highstreet.There are also a lot of tempting tea,coffee ,cake and pubs so it is easy to take a leisurely stroll up or down.

Steep Hill is lovely for a slow wander. A rail is at the side to help anyone struggling. Lots of lovely independent shops, cafes and bars on the way to browse. Then you come to the Castle and Bailgate. Lovely day out.

I prefer to go up Steep Hill so that as you tire there are many independent shops on the way up that you can stop at and gaze in whilst you regain your breath. I also enjoy the joy of reaching the top and discovering the historic part of Lincoln. The castle and cathedral both give a reward to your... More

The cobbled streets in the old city make Steep Hill a fairly hard walk when going up toward the Cathedral and Castle. En route there are notable old buildings and quaint shops and tea rooms.

If your not fit, then don't try and walk up Steep Hill. It is very steep. It does however have lots of interesting shops and cafes along the way.

It is indeed steep - but charming with shops, tea rooms and lots of people watching. We did this walk, several times, but only down hill.
