Pocket Guide: York Clifford's Tower Hotels

North Yorkshire is one of England's most historically significant counties, as well as being one of its most beautiful. Home to several of the United Kingdom's best-known National Parks, it's the great outdoors that lures in most of the county's visitors. A good chunk also come for the historical attractions, making the City of York the country's second most visited city. Clifford's Tower sits at the heart of the city, a proud centrepiece around which the historic city of York goes about its daily business. Thanks to its central location, it's flanked by numerous spectacular hotels and guesthouses.

An Historic Tower

The original structure to be built on this famous mound was constructed by William the Conqueror in 1086. Sadly, the timber structure burned down in a horrific massacre a century later. The current building was erected shortly after as the keep of York Castle. The tower measures 50 feet in height and around 200ft in diameter. Its design is distinctly Norman.

Begin Your Visit to York

Set atop a prominent hill, Clifford's Tower makes an excellent place to begin your visit to the historic City of York. The site offers panoramic views out across Old York, allowing visitors to survey the city's landmarks and attractions from up high. A new viewing platform is being fitted by English Heritage, making taking it all in that bit easier.
