The main advantage to a visit to Cliffords Tower must be the opportunity to see the amazing views across York. The views from here are much better than from York Minster's tower, possibly because the climb is less exhausting and you can look AT York Minster across the city.

The Tower is all that is left of York Castle and it is only a small site which won't take long to visit but as it is so close to many other attractions it is worth the effort.

Cost is only 3.50 and free to English Heritage members and if you have got the Yorkshire Pass.

There isn't much in the way of displays but the information which is given and the guide book are of the usual excellent quality that English Heritage produce.
