“Situated, as its name suggests, at the westernmost point of the old city's boundary, Westgate Towers Museum & Viewpoint is housed in the country's largest surviving medieval gatehouse. Built in 1380, the Westgate was one of seven such structures built to defend the access points into the city. Today, this impressive building houses a fascinating museum showcasing the history of the city along with its own storied past. A highlight for most is the opportunity to visit an original "felon's" cell dating from the early 19th century (the building once served as a jail and police station). ”
