Clifford’s Tower

Client: English Heritage
Builder: Simpson (York) Ltd
Architect: Hugh Broughton Architects

Clifford’s Tower is the largest surviving structure from the medieval royal castle of York. The Tower has stood as a roofless ruin since a fire in 1684. 

An enlarged public area at the base of the mound provides space to engage with visitors. Access up the stair to the Tower has been improved with resting places. Historic fabric has been fastidiously conserved. A timber structure has been installed to partially cover and protect the ruin and provide fantastic views over the city. 

Suspended metal walkways give access to previously unseen features. Interpretation features describe the remarkable history of the Tower.
