In the heart of England, Coventry is a busy city with a rich history. According to legend, it’s the birthplace of St George. Coventry’s convenience for other major cities such as Birmingham and London makes it popular with commuters.
The ring road in the city centre is where you’ll find most Coventry hotels. There are rooms available to suit all budgets, all the way up to the Hilton and luxury boutique hotels outside the city.
Things to do in Coventry
Start with a walk around the city centre to see how much Coventry has to offer. The architectural highlight is Coventry Cathedral, built in the 20th century to replace the 15th-century original. It’s one of three historic cathedrals in the city. Another newer structure is Coventry’s war memorial, dedicated to Coventry people killed in WWI, WWII and the Gulf War.
Coventry’s theatre is the Belgrade, showing comedy, plays and musicals. The Warwick Arts Centre at the city’s University of Warwick campus is the largest arts centre outside London.
Have a day out with the family at Laser Quest Coventry or at Ace Karting. There’s also the Ricoh Arena, the home of the Wasps rugby club and used for live music concerts. You can even find a casino and leisure facilities inside the arena.
Coventry’s multicultural and diverse population means that restaurants of all kinds have sprung up across the city. Chinese, Indian, Italian and British eateries have made it into the top ten on TripAdvisor.
Around 8% of the city’s population is Indian, and the number and quality of Coventry’s Indian restaurants rivals London’s Brick Lane and Manchester’s Curry Mile.
The recognisable chains include Nando’s for chicken, Bella Italia, Pizza Express, and the gastropub-style Harvester.
