Vintage clothes, vintage sweets and even Belgian chocolates up Steep Hill, Lincoln

It catches out even the fittest of individuals. Steep Hill may be charming, but it certainly lives up to its name. However, if you ever happen to find yourself in Lincolnshire, UK, trekking this urban climb is a must do.

Lining this cobbled, historic hill are numerous independent shops selling all sorts of goodies from vintage clothes and Belgian Chocolates to Russian dolls and even vintage sweets.

I was made up to spot one of my childhood favourites in the window: rhubarb and custards.
If all this excitement wasn’t enough, there are more surprises waiting at the top – in the form of Lincoln’s Cathedral Quarter.
