Clifford’s Tower is situated in the historic city of York, England, UK and is an English Heritage site.
The original motte and bailey castle on this site was built of wood around 1068 but was subsequently burnt to the ground. The stone tower on top of the mound was rebuilt in the latter part of the 13th century and continued to play a major role throughout York’s history. The tower has an unusual four lobed design. Well worth a visit, and very pretty in the springtime when the mound is covered in flowering daffodils.
