About Clifford’s Tower

Immerse yourself in centuries of history at one of York's most iconic sites and experience stunning views over the ancient city.

Built to subdue the rebellious north by William the Conqueror, Clifford’s Tower has been a royal mint, a medieval stronghold and a Civil War garrison and the site of one of the worst antisemitic massacres of the Middle Ages.

Today, a new roof deck gives unrivalled views over York's historic skyline and new walkways and staircases have opened up parts of the tower that have been closed for centuries. Immersive soundscapes and stories are bringing the tower’s turbulent history to life like never before.
