What does Coventry have to offer?

Coventry is an upwardly mobile city in the heart of England. It has a population of over 360,000, has an emerging economy and a high rate of Gross Value Added (reference) and is the nearest city to the University of Warwick. It is a vibrant place and is home to many of our staff and students who live off-campus. As a city it is famous for its medieval Cathedral which was left in ruins after a WWII bombing. There are 3 famous cathedrals in Coventry, 14th-century St. Mary’s Guildhall which has a vaulted crypt, "The Old Cathedral" built in 1918 as St. Michael's parish church and "The New Cathedral" which is a masterpiece associated with Sir Basil Spence who rebuilt and modernly designed it after WW2's bombing.

Coventry Transport Museum has the biggest collection of British made cars, motorcycles and bicycles in the world. Coventry has been moving people by cycle, car and peace for centuries and now we will move people through Culture and Education.

The approximately 60,000 students at Warwick and Coventry Universities bring foreign spending power and a youthful vibe to a city with a population seven years younger than the UK average (The Sunday Times).
