York Castle


The castle was the scene of a strange hallucination in 1717. Sir John Reresby saw a piece of paper that was being blown by the wind turn into a monkey and then a bear. Perhaps an early discoverer of Opium.

Clifford's Tower
Originally a Norman Motte and Bailey the tower designed on a quatrefoil plan was a refuge for Jews during one of the persecutions during the Middle Ages.
