| Events in Coventry | 10 Places to Stay

If your perception of Coventry is still rooted in the idea that it’s not a great place to be sent to, then it’s time you took another look.
As so often in its thousand-year history, the city is re-inventing itself once again.
More than £1 billion is currently being invested in a huge range of new facilities, from super-hospital and sports stadiums to city centre shopping and leisure and arts and museum development. And there’s more to come.
The buzz of regeneration is removing some of the uglier aspects of the city’s last re-invention, post-1945. But it’s also revealing more of the historic Coventry that still remains beneath.
Alongside cutting edge architecture are new heritage attractions – the 12th century undercrofts from Coventry’s first great cathedral church, destroyed by Henry VIII, and nearby Holy Trinity’s just restored Coventry Doom, one of Europe’s finest medieval wall paintings.
The city’s cathedral quarter, a place of pilgrimage now as in the Middle Ages, showcases in buildings and public open spaces Coventry’s rich and turbulent history, from the site of Godiva’s church to Millennium Place, fronting the city’s world-ranked motor museum.
All this and such easy access too. Coventry sits right at the heart of Warwickshire, Shakespeare’s county, just an hour by train from London and minutes from Birmingham International Airport and its own new, short-haul hub, Coventry Airport.
So don’t wait to be sent to Coventry. Come anyway.
