If you have a nice sunny day (or at least one without rain), I'd highly recommend at least walking part of the city walls. I missed a section when I jumped off to visit Clifford's Tower but I probably walked about 3/4 of the walls.

Print out a copy of the guide on the attached website (click on download as a PDF), it was very handy to have while walking around as it explains various sites along the walls, the history of the walls and most importantly how to get from section to section.

As suggested in the guide I started near the Museum gardens which is very close to the train station if you are coming in from London.
