Step into a world of rich heritage at this unique tourist attraction. In 1962, a new cathedral was built alongside the ruins of the old building that was bombed during the Second World War. The city’s tallest structure also boasts the third tallest cathedral spire in England.
Like the city itself, welcoming Coventry Cathedral is accessible to everybody and beautifully blends the ancient and modern. Get a taste of the sublime with an organ concert followed by a wander downstairs to view the fascinating collection of archive photographs. Rest your feet with a nice cuppa in the Café Rising and sample their freshly-baked cakes. A little taste of heaven.
Boasting over 180,000 specimens from the natural world, you won’t run out of things to see. Don’t miss the fabulous Lepidoptera collection, where 52,000 butterflies and moths are on display.
Visitors are given a fresh approach to the story of Coventry - whether that’s by dressing-up as a funky local legend or getting a noseful of their medieval toilet. A free children’s trail means that the little ones will be kept occupied, while adults may prefer the collection of modern art.
There are also a wide variety of creative workshops, talks and events.
There’s a world of exhibitions in this independent museum created and curated entirely by volunteers. Coventry’s rich musical heritage is showcased with both music history and contemporary showcases of Coventry artists sitting side by side. Get to know 2-Tone, a local blend of ska music and punk rock. If that’s not your cup of tea, they’re bound to have something which will be music to your ears.
Although the museum might seem small, there’s still plenty to see, along with fun activities to keep younger visitors happy. For the ultimate hands-on experience compose your own masterpiece in their very own studio. End your visit with a trip to the numerous memorabilia shops.
Coventry Transport Museum houses the largest publicly owned collection of British vehicles in the world, and tells the fascinating story of Coventry and its people through the rise and fall of its biggest industry.
Coventry Transport Museum isn’t just for transport enthusiasts: it’s for storytellers and escapists; speed freaks and thrill-seekers; history buffs and culture vultures. It offers a uniquely human perspective on the city’s motoring heritage, and is one of the Midlands’ best days out.
Retreat from the big city in the 500 acres of Coombe Country Park. Beautiful gardens, woodland walks and birdwatching will make you feel a million miles from bustling Coventry.
The landscape was also designed by Georgian landscaping genius Capability Brown, so you’ll be relaxing in designer surroundings.
Step into St Mary’s Guildhall and follow in the footsteps of the likes of Mary Queen of Scots and William Shakespeare.
Coventry’s merchant guildhall is one of the best-preserved in England, located on the small roads of the cathedral quarters. The rooms inside this calming medieval building offer a portal into the past, containing a vast range of armour, art and other historic gems.
Don’t miss the Main Hall, topped with a serene ceiling of carved angels and huge stained glass. It’d also be a shame to leave without seeing one of the most important tapestries in England - covering an entire wall.
Relax under the charming vaulted ceiling of Godiva’s café and with a slice of cake and tea: a popular spot for locals. Unlike Lady Godiva, you’ll be expected to wear clothes.
