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.

  • Beautiful old buildings which gives a sense of the past. Wear sensible shoes!! Very very steep. Walking down to the Jewish house, one of the oldest house in the country.  more »
  • Quite steep but not as steep as I remember, lovely street full of cafes, curiosity shops and galleries. Recommend Buntys and the antique shop which is well stocked.  more »
  • Lincoln is a very nice city to visit. Steep Hill is a unique part of the city. It is a bit off the ‘beaten track’ but don’t let that put you off. Climb Steep Hill if you can! There are plenty of bars ...  more »
