A top York attraction is staying open late at night for the longest day of the year.

Clifford's Tower will be staying open until 10pm on Friday, June 21 - the summer solstice - to give visitors a unique view of the city on the longest day of the year.

Julie Brookes, site manager at Clifford’s Tower, said: "The 360 degree views from the tower are absolutely spectacular and at night are extra special.


"Opening up after hours gives our visitors something a little different to experience and with the sun setting at around 9.30pm it’s a photographer's dream."

In 2022, a free-standing timber structure was installed within the tower, protecting the structure and creating a new roof deck to provide magnificent views over York.

Normal opening prices apply and entry is free for English Heritage members. Last entry is at 9.30pm.
