Coventry Transport Museum

Step out from your Coventry hotel and into the four-wheeled wonderland that is the city’s motor museum, or find out what happened to the original Peeping Tom when he copped a look at naked Lady Godiva.

Historic Coventry

St Mary’s Guildhall, built in the 1340s, was the temporary home of Mary, Queen of Scots and also the stage for one young Bill Shakespeare. Easily the city’s finest building is Coventry Cathedral, its post-war creation a defiant two fingers to the Luftwaffe’s demolition.

Art and museums in Coventry

Watch out for people in a boy-racer daze as they gawk at Thrust 2, Richard Noble’s world land speed record-breaking car at Coventry Transport Museum’s Spirit of Speed gallery. You’ll get a good grounding of the city’s history at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in Jordan Well which chronicles 1,000 years of history, including a dedicated Godiva exhibit.

Quirky things to do in Coventry

Life as a Roman is excellently reproduced at the Lunt Roman Fort Museum on Coventry Road in Baginton, where you can see what those legions got up to when they weren’t conquering Europe.

Events in Coventry

Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre, the cathedral and other music venues host the city’s jazz festival each May. Book your Coventry hotel in time for the enormously popular free Godiva Festival, which puts on big pop acts and a funfair every July.
