You feel you’ve accomplished something when you finally reach the top! It’s better than a gym workout but far far more interesting! The architecture is fascinating. Lots of lovely shops & cafes to look into. It’s a definite must do.

True to its name this is a tough climb over cobblestones up a very steep hill. The street - and its side streets - is home to houses and shops from various periods of history from the medieval to the modern day.

Prepare for your heart, lungs and leg muscles to be beaten into submission. This road/Hill is very steep! Mostly pedestrian but listen out for cars. Very pretty street lined with coffee shops and tea rooms and other quaint establishments as you ascend towards the castle...More

Never was a street more aptly named. There are beautiful historic buildings on each side of this narrow, cobbled pedestrianised street. There are plenty of cafes pubs and independent shops along the way. Definitely not for the faint hearted either on the way up or...More

The road from the town up to the cathedral is called steep hill and you can see why. It has lots of lovely shops along the way and a stop half way up. It gets very steep towards the end

Really tough on the old legs trying to walk back up this from the very bottom from The Straight. Very pretty cobbled street with lots of independent little boutique shops. They are a little expensive though and a bit of a tourist trap. Still, a...More

A nice must do walk when visiting the castle or cathedral along a very quaint and steep hill, maybe not suitable for anyone who does not like walking.
