Work to upgrade Clifford’s Tower is nearly complete, and it is being prepared to re-open to the public.
As we revealed last month, the York castle will throw open its doors again on Saturday 2 April.
But if you are an English Heritage member, you can get an early look around.
English Heritage owns the historic monument, and has been responsible for the £5 million investment programme.
“Along with the new free standing roof deck, new internal walkways and historic stairwells, which have been out of use for centuries, help to show the historical layout of the tower and give a better understanding of the history,” it says.
“There is also new information which will shed light on a number of chapters in the tower’s turbulent history. New soundscapes will also bring the tower and its stories to life.”
English Heritage members can book on one of two hour-long tours of Clifford’s Tower on Friday, 1 April.
Experts will explain how the project has “both conserved the tower and enhanced the visitor experience”.
The tours run at 11am and 2pm. You can find out more and book here.
