All that remains of the York Castle is the Clifford Tower, one of the main attractions in the area. Close by, the York Castle Museum tells the story of York in a way that makes the past live again. The York Dungeon will take you back to those dark days of the Tower’s history. The York Minster, with its glorious glass stained windows is a masterpiece, and the underground chambers have new interactive galleries showcasing the treasures of the cathedral in an amazing display.
