Coventry has always been a great place to visit – and it’s getting better all the time! A new-look city centre, new attractions and tasty new bars and restaurants, mean there’s more on offer to visitors to the city than ever before.
The city’s history has always been popular with tourists who learn the legend of Lady Godiva, and visit the medieval St Mary’s Guildhall and the magnificent Cathedral and Cathedral Ruins – a moving reminder of the tragedies of the Second World War. But there’s more to Coventry than its history.
The city centre has undergone a major facelift in recent years, making it a greener, more pleasant, pedestrian-friendly place and the new-look Broadgate Square is the perfect place to enjoy events or sit and watch the world go by.
The square is also home to a new restaurant quarter, boasting well-known names such as Wagamama, The Cosy Club and Las Iguanas.
Visitors can take in a show at the Belgrade Theatre, see the largest collection of British Road Transport in the world at the Transport Museum, watch top musicians and comedians at the Warwick Arts Centre, or wander around the latest exhibition at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum.
The new Fargo Village is a creative and cultural hub, inspired by the Camden and Brick Lane areas of London, with a tempting mix of businesses, shops - and eateries and with top level sport including premiership rugby team Wasps, Coventry City FC, the Blaze ice hockey team and the thrills of speedway with the Bees, there’s something for everyone.
And if you fancy a break from city life, within a short drive you’re spoiled for choice, with an array of fantastic places to visit in beautiful rural Warwickshire, from the shops of Royal Leamington Spa, to the grandeur of Warwick and the market towns of Kenilworth, Nuneaton and Rugby.
Come and take a look at Coventry and see what’s new.
