All_ss_pave2.jpg
All Saints, Pavement211 viewsThe lantern tower of this church can be seen all over the city. It was once used to guide travellers through the surrounding Forest of Galtres. There is some modern stained glass inside, which is as well crafted as any ancient stuff.

Café in Spurrier Gate223 viewsDoes an excellent steak and mushroom pie, but gets full at weekends. Once a church, it has seen a tasteful conversion and it has not changed the original structure much.

Clifford's Tower219 viewsOnce part of the castle, the tower was the scene of a massacre of the local Jewish population in 1190. The rest of the castle became a prison and then a museum. The tower fell into disrepair after an explosion in 1684.
