Join us on an unforgettable journey through time as we unveil the intriguing past of Clifford's Tower. Built in the 1250s during the reign of King Henry III, this large stone tower has witnessed centuries of historical events.

Thanks to a major investment by English Heritage, the fascinating story of Clifford's Tower will finally be revealed at one of York's most significant heritage sites. Marvel at the tower's architectural marvels and learn about its multifaceted roles throughout history.

In the 14th and 15th centuries, Clifford's Tower served as a treasury, exchequer, mint, gaol, and a seat of royal power. During the Civil War (1642-9), the tower was held by the royalists while the city faced a siege, making it a crucial strategic stronghold.

In 1684, a devastating fire reduced the tower to a mere shell. Although many castle buildings vanished with the construction of a new prison and court in the 18th and 19th centuries, Clifford's Tower remains as the principal surviving remnant of York Castle, echoing tales of its former glory.
