A very steep hill leading from the town up to the Cathederal and Bailsgate. It certainly is steep but has some beautiful independent shops on the way up which breaks up the walk. Lots of variety, gift shops, jewellery and butchers and bakers make up...More

This is a lively quaint street, very steep but well worth the climb, lots of independant shops and places to eat. A really lovely place.
