What to see in Coventry

Coventry's cathedral, which was mostly destroyed by the Luftwaffe during the Second World War, has been reconstructed with contrasting modernist elements. As well as traditional artworks you might expect in a cathedral, it displays local archaeological artefacts. St Mary’s Guildhall is another iconic site representing the city's historic past. Browse the collection of artwork and furniture and learn about visits from British icons such as William Shakespeare and Mary, Queen of Scots. For a glimpse at some of the city's original architecture that survived the war, visit Holy Trinity Church and gape at its impressive 73-metre spire. And don't miss the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum when you're in town. The esteemed museum covers a range of topics, from natural history to fine art.

Coventry is a sports fan's paradise. Watch a local game of football or rugby union at the Ricoh Arena or weekly greyhound races at the Brandon Stadium. For an evening of entertainment in Coventry, head to Spon Street in the west of the city, where you'll find traditional pubs sitting alongside trendy cocktail bars. The city is home to no less than 12 pubs featured in CAMRA's Good Beer Guide, several cinemas, and two theatres, the Albany and the Belgrade.

Where to stay in Coventry

For ideally located cheap hotels in Coventry, look for accommodations within the city's ring road. The centre of town can be traversed within 30 minutes with little need for public transport, making it easy to reach major attractions such as the cathedral, Christchurch Spire, and the Lady Godiva Statue. The city's northern quarter is where you'll find attractions such as Coventry Transport Museum and Swanswell Gate, while hotels south of the centre provide the best access to the train station. The eastern part of the city, dominated by university buildings, is the ideal place to stay if you're visiting Coventry students or looking to check out the student bars. Nighthawks will be drawn to hotels in West Coventry, its premier nightlife spot. Hotels in this part of the city, particularly in Earlsdon and Chapel Fields, also provide easy access to green spaces such as War Memorial Park and Hearsall Common, both excellent places to relax with the whole family.
