Clifford's Tower, which stands between Fishergate and Skeldergate Bridges and offers views of York Castle Museum, was originally constructed in wood in 1068 by the Normans. The oldest component of York Castle, however, was built in the 13th century as a replacement for the original timber fortification and is what you can see looming over you right now. The tower was notorious for being the location where the monarch would display individuals who had been put to death. It was named after Roger de Clifford, who was beheaded here in 1322 as the leader of the Lancastrian party. The tower has recently undergone upgrades and renovations with substantial wood beams and steel stairways. It is now well-known for its breathtaking panoramic views of the city.
