The climb up can be demanding. There are lots of shops to visit on the way up or down great views as you climb. Well worth the effort as both the castle and cathedral are at the top.

A very steep hill not to bad going down railings at the steepest part, got breathless coming back up. Lots of shops and cafes to go into if you want a rest on the way up or down, leads into the town centre.

Vast variety of shops each offering their own delights. The hill was so steep that you had to stop and each door.

There's a reason for this having its name because believe me it's steep . We did it twice and it wasn't any easier the second time . You can take your time to walk up as there's plenty of interesting buildings to stop and look...More

This hill is intense! I swear its almost vertical. Don't expect to have much breath left after reaching the top. Its a hell of a hike... but.... at the top? The cathedral and the castle!!! You gotta do it at least once.

There's a new Premiere Inn on the main road through Lincoln (A15). Thus gives great walking access to central Lincoln or there's another just at the top of Canwick Hill if that suits you.

Response from Sarah S | Reviewed this property |
No parking on steep hill bul lots up at the top and bottom. If you don't want to go too far start at the to snd park just off the bail gate. Worth it!
