Lovely shops as you walk up the hill, takes your mind off the walk. The added bonus when you reach the summit it is the beautiful castle and cathedral. The Magna Carta pub was a much deserved stop for food and drinks.

My first visit to Lincoln but hopefully not the last. The Steep hill is a very pretty cobblestone steet, with quaint shops and tearooms either side. Not easy to walk down and even more difficult going back up, but I believe there is access by...More

Great bars, great cafès great shops. We stayed in Lincoln for a few days and ate here every day, all slightly different, my bar of choice was the Straight and Narrow, at the bottom and best eat was the Brown's Pie Shop near the top.
