Clifford's Tower

Clifford Tower was built in the 13C by Henry III to replace the wooden fort of William the Conqueror - this was burnt down in 1190 by the people who besieged the Jews who had take refuge inside. Formerly occupied by two-storey private apartments, destroyed in the 17C, the inner courtyard is now empty.
