London may have had The Olympics but here in Lincoln we have won the Gold Medal of Streets. In 2012 The Academy of Urbanism voted Steep Hill as 'Britain's Best Place' beating off two other finalists - Byres Road Glasgow and Cockburn Street Edinburgh. Aptly named, Steep Hill is a Roman Road with a variety of architecture and a plethora of independent shops. Steep Hill connects the downhill shopping area of Lincoln to the historic Cathedral Quarter quaranteeing an unforgettable experience!
