Lovely steep hill leading from the pedestrianised shopping centre upto the castle. Old cobbled road with narrow pavements and lovely, old buildings, very traditional and atmospheric.
The street is lined with a lovely mix of eateries and shops. The shops are small, boutique type shops, all selling something different and not a chain store in sight.

Well! the clues in the name and it couldn't have been more appropriately named. No matter ow fit you are the hill will test you. I often have to stop at the top, have a drink and a 2minute sit down to regather myself Hehe. The thing I do suggest is to make use of all the cute little Victorian shops that can be found whe venturing up the hill. On occasion we have found going in these shops (even if just for a look around) allows people to take the hill a little at a time and at their own pace. Shops on the hill include an old fashioned vintage sweet shop, antique stores, vintage treasure chests and other little gems. I deffinatly recommend going up steep hill because although it is very testing on your physical stamina it very pretty.
