With historic functions including a prison and a royal mint, Clifford's Tower is a must-see when visiting York. As the largest surviving structure of York Castle, Clifford's Tower provides plenty to see and do, and it's just a short walk away from the centre of York.

[The Tower is closed until summer 2021 whilst vital conservation works take place, so please check the English Heritage website for reopening dates and to book your visit]
