Clifford’s Tower at York Castle, along with the York Castle Museum, is one of the few remaining remnants of York Castle. Clifford’s Tower is the only building left after the war and fire, while York Castle Museum, converted from a prison, has a pavilion that imitates the real scene of Victorian streets in the 19th century, showing bakeries, banks, bars, tailors and so on.
The cobblestone Stonegate, in the centre of York, predates the Viking occupation and retains many medieval buildings. Every shop on the street has a unique architectural style and sells local souvenirs. There is a new underground cable car line, themed on Viking life, featuring a relatively complete representation of ancient (10th-century AD) lifestyles, with a sci-fi twist (Time Machine). Near Stonegate is a lane called Shambles, one of York’s most historic streets.
