Walked up and down this hill several times over the course of a weekend break! Lovely individual shops to stop and go in on the way. Lots of tea shops to stop in for a well earned cuppa if you so wish. I saw the climb as a challenge but it's not for everyone. Part of the Lincoln experience!!

Absolutely love this place, it seeps history from every stone . Steep Hill is very quaint , serene and enchanting, so much to see and do . Despite the energy needed to climb up , it is worth every calorie spent.

Lovely little tea shops and privately owned shops with friendly assistants. Quite a climb, could be slippery when wet

Lovely cobbled street. Looked like it could have been in a Harry Potter film. Eclectic mix of individual shops. Quite steep which wasn't a problem for us but might be for some. But there are lots of tea shops to break up the hill.

Lovely shops and coffee/tea houses to rest in up and down steep hill while your heart rate recovers.

It's a long very steep walk you need to be fit, or maybe do some window shopping while you catch your breath

You think it is steep but my gosh it is next level steep. Lovely to see independent shops. Pretty you can tell who the local people are because they quite easily overtake you. 🤗

This walk definitely isn't for the faint of heart - note that there is a bus service that runs around Lincoln including up the hill which can be used with bus passes for free travel - but it is a very pretty walk with some lovely old buildings, and obviously great views and attractions at the top as well.
