Clifford's Tower played a crucial role in the control of northern England. The tower has a turbulent history, surviving 1,000 years of flood, fire and siege. Its origins were violent: William the Conqueror built the castle for his northern campaign of terror in 1069. At various points in its history, Clifford's Tower became a royal mint, functioned as a prison, gruesomely displayed the bodies of leaders of uprisings, and was even a court.

For some people just a bunch of old bricks, but for some it's a great place to let your imagination go!
Right at the city this great historical tower/castle. Nice place to have a great view of the city.
