Quaint street, and a pleasant journey going down - but didn't feel the shops were worth the dreadful treck back up it!

We stayed in a hotel at the top of the hill. It was extremely hot when we visited, so we decided to go down the hill early in the morning so that it wouldn't be quite so hot when we climbed back up the hill later on. Plenty of interesting shops and buildings to look at, and some handy benches... More

This is a very steep climb up the hill from the modern offerings of shopping etc. in the city to the historic castle and cathedral - well worth the climb. Lots of shops on the way to spend or to take a break in for coffee.

Never was a street more accurately named - it really is very steep! Fortunately there are plenty of pubs and tea rooms all along it to revitalise you as you amble from one quaint little old-fashioned shop to the next. If you want to cheat, there's a hop-on hop-off bus service that runs in a loop from the bottom of... More

The clue is in the name....it is steep! But, there are a selection of tea shops and restaurants and pubs all the way from top to bottom if you need a cheeky excuse to stop. You can also be relieved of money in other ways with a selection of lovely shops, from up market clothing shops, to fudge and belgian... More

Recently climbed this amazing hill and got the fridge magnet to prove it. We took friends and they were very impressed with the Lincolnshire heights. The backdrop of the cathedral and castle are always impressive.
