2. A Day At Steep Hill

Steep Hill_LincolnThis street, as its name would suggest, is notably steep. However, it’s a wonderful part of the city that is host to all sorts of independent shops. Tackle the hill on a first date (pop into the shops along the way for a bit of a break) for a unique experience. It’s a great chance to discuss the local area and Norman homes; visit shops you might not have done before; and pop into a café for a bite to eat. There’s a nice market at the top too. It might be easier to start at the top and work your way down if you don’t fancy the incline!
