What does Coventry have to offer?
Coventry is a city in central England. It’s known for the medieval Coventry Cathedral, which was left in ruins after a WWII bombing. A 20th-century replacement, with abstract stained glass, stands beside it. The collection at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum includes paintings of local heroine Lady Godiva. A statue of her, naked on horseback, is nearby. The 14th-century St. Mary’s Guildhall has a vaulted crypt.
Coventry is the nearest city to the University of Warwick and home to many of our students who live off-campus. Famous for its Cathedral, Lady Godiva, and the devastation brought to the city in World War 2, Coventry is an ever-developing city steeped in history. Linked to the campus by a regular bus service, is a busy manufacturing city (Jaguar, the Peugeot Motor Company) with a population of 300,000.
