CLIFFORD’S TOWER, York
Clifford's Tower, maybe so named because Roger de Clifford was once hung in chains from its walls, is the keep and a significant remaining medieval portion of York's once mighty fortress. Its shape is unique in England. In 1190, the site of the keep was the scene of the mass suicide of York's persecuted Jews. There are fine views of the City from its walls.
