We ordered three burgers paid more than 30£ and even the bread wasn't fresh.... Only the potatoes was good but it is also overpriced... Next time we will drink only...

The street is quite steep but has loads of quirky shops. It's not very long but a nice thing to go and see if you're passing!

This is one of those places that you need to see at Christmas because of all the lights it really looks amazing at night.

We were going to walk Christmas steps but unfortunately the whole of the lower part was full of rough sleepers, drunks and rowdy individuals, which was really a repeat of our experience earlier in the day in Broadmead and the underpass in Bond Street, Bristol...More

Years ago this place interested me, but I realised over the years it's just some steps which are very old. Nothing too exciting as you walk up/down but a quick route to get into the centre.

I have been here once Before and just had to visit again when I had the chance it's picturesque and quaint . Loved it as much as my first visit. Unfortunately I was so in awe of it I forgot to take pictures .

Not as many good shops here as there used to be bit of a let down really. Some shops are still here but most of the old classic ones have eiter closed down or moved

Dating back as far as the 1600s the Christmas Steps have a lovely historic charm with quaint art galleries, bars and shops. Located a minute's walk from the O2 Academy it is very easy to get to.

Nice old steps that take you down to the fountains, lots of speciality shops along the steps to be discovered. For city visitors this is a must visit.

We were glad we included the Christmas Steps in our historic walk itinerary as it gives a taste of a bygone age.
