The city of Coventry is steeped in beauty, culture, and history. Some of the places where these qualities are most present can be found right below.
Just a 12-minute walk from Coventry Station, Coventry Cathedral is two cathedrals in one.
The first cathedral is the Church Of St. Michael. Built in 1918, the church was heavily damaged during World War 2, necessitating the need for repairs, many of which were finished in 1962.
Spaces and structures belonging to the Church Of St. Michael still remain, such as elegant interior walls and a Gothic spire. These exist alongside spaces and structures built after World War 2, serving as a clear illustration of the ways in which World War 2 transformed Coventry.
Herbert Art Gallery & Museum
A vast, bright, open space, Herbert Art Gallery & Museum is just that: an art gallery, as well as a museum. You can find, within the space, historic documents, archaeological artefacts, distinctive paintings, striking sculptures; along with many other delights.
Each one of these items illustrates both Coventry’s history and the artistic accomplishments of its residents. Great for students who are fascinated by art and history, as well as Coventry itself.
Coombe Abbey Country Park
Coombe Abbey Country Park is abundant with charms and delights. Some of these include:
A Beautiful Lake
Each one of these attractions is free, making Coombe Abbey Country Park an inexpensive, yet delightful, adventure.
War Memorial Park
Between 1914 and 1918, 2,587 Coventry citizens perished fighting in World War 1. War Memorial Park is a tribute to those citizens.
To honour those Coventry citizens, War Memorial Park consists of:
A Small Aviary
The War Memorial Monument
Vast, Open Green Spaces
Every year, War Memorial Park is used to host the Godiva Festival and Caribbean Festival. Both festivals are very popular with students.
