Coventry

There’s no shortage of things to do in Coventry.

  • Family

    • Coventry is packed with both free and paid-for attractions.

    • There's acres of park life to explore, from the unspoilt beauty of Allesley Park to the 500-acre splendour of Coombe County Park, which is a great place for a picnic or to spend the day relaxing.

    • A short journey out of Coventry will lead you to Warwick Castle; a feast of medieval architecture, interactive shows, dark dungeons and imposing towers.

    • For an altogether more lively time, visit the Coventry Music Museum. The Museum is a permanent celebration of the great music and artists that have grown from the area, from 60's pop to 80's 2-Tone and more, with many rare and coveted artefacts from the area's proud music history.

  • Dining & Shopping

    • Coventry has a varied shopping scene. From major outlets and shopping centres to independent stores and quaint boutiques.

    • West Orchids, Lower Precinct and Cathedral Lanes are the main shopping areas in the city centre, specialising in high street favourites.

    • For something different, try Greyfriars Walk, City Arcade, or Smithford Way, where you can pick up everything from jewellery and fancy dress to vintage and retro clothing.

    • Coventry has a diverse and multicultural cuisine scene. You’ll find everything from high street chains to high-end brasseries, pit-stop cafes to charming teashops.

    • Try Fitz2Eat in the city centre for cheap and cheerful traditional food, or the unique Blue Bistro, which serves modern British cuisine with a Mediterranean twist set in romantic, medieval surroundings.

  • Did you know?

    • Legend has it that Coventry was the birthplace of St George, Patron Saint of England and dragon slayer.
