Trip Planner:   Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Lincolnshire  /  Lincoln  /  Steep Hill
Take a stroll up or down one of England's most atmospheric streets, Steep Hill. Named for its steep 14 percent gradient, the street spills down from the Lincoln Cathedral, at the top, to Well Lane, at the bottom. In between, you'll find an array of retro and vintage shops, pubs, and tearooms housed in old brick and stone buildings. As you stroll past Norman House and Jew's House, stop to admire their Norman architecture, which includes mullioned windows typical of the period. Because the street does live up to its name, you'll likely find the downhill route a bit easier. By using our Lincoln trip maker site, you can arrange your visit to Steep Hill and other attractions in Lincoln.

  • Runs through the heart of Lincoln from the city centre up to the castle and cathedral. Lots of lovely unique shops and restaurants both sides of the road. And yes you guessed it very very steep.  more »
  • Enjoyed walking up it rather than down it, was rather cold and the flags were rather frosty. Love looking at all the old shops and bars as we explored  more »
