Lincoln is a city of two geographic parts; a thriving city centre linked to an uphill quarter watched over the Lincoln Castle and Lincoln Cathedral. The spine that runs through them was once the Fosse Way, the Roman road from Lincoln to Exeter.

'Uphill Lincoln' is the last mile of the old street. It starts on the Strait at the top of the High Street, works its way up Steep Hill to Castle Hill, the square between the castle and the cathedral, then on to Bailgate.

On route you will find dozens of independent specialist shops, cafes, and bars. On Bailgate there are many more independent shops alongside hairdressers, food shops, a post office, pharmacy, and all the other places you would expect from a flourishing village.
