Plan a Great Day Out
The city of York is just over 20 miles away, and is home to two fascinating English Heritage sites. Climb to the top of the ramparts of Clifford's Tower for fantastic views over the city, and descend into York Cold War Bunker for an insight into how Britain would have coped with the fallout from a nuclear war.
English Heritage cares for over 400 historic buildings, monuments and places - from world-famous prehistoric sites to grand medieval castles, from Roman forts on the edges of empire to a Cold War bunker. Through these, we bring the story of England to life for over 10 million people each year. The English Heritage Trust is a charity, no. 1140351, and a company, no. 0744722, registered in England.
