Cliffords TowerClifford's Tower

For the sheer drama of its setting, and its chequered history there is little in York to rival Clifford's Tower.  The tower stands on a high mound erected by William the Conqueror as part of his campaign to overthrow the North. He threw up two mottes (mounds) with wooden keeps on top - one became Clifford's Tower and the Baille Hill, which can be seen on the side of the river, although the tower there has long since disappeared.

The ShamblesThe Shambles

The Shambles is one of York's best known streets, although it is technically a single street running between King's Square and Pavement, The Shambles is often used to also collectively refer to the surrounding twisting streets and alleyways.  The Shambles itself is one of the best preserved medieval streets in Europe, and it takes you immediately back to what life must have been like in Elizabethan times.

National Railway MuseumNational Railway Museum

The National Railway Museum is home to a wide range of railway icons and literally millions of artefacts, from the Mallard - the world's fastest steam locomotive - to a lock of Robert Stephensons hair.  Its vast collections, including more than 100 engines, tell the railway tale from the Rocket to the Eurostar.  Permanent displays include the jewel in the museum's crown - Palaces on Wheels. With Royal saloons dating back to the Victorian era, visitors have the rare chance to glimpse inside the sumptuous bedrooms, dining rooms and day saloons, which really are palaces on wheels.
