Coventry isn’t a city you hear much about or would really give a second thought to. However, there is more to Coventry if you bother to take a look. Coventry has an old and rich history. It was heavily bombed during the WWII. This means that there is a substantial variety of new architecture mixed in with very old properties. Coventry is also a University City. This means that there is a rich mix of young people living in the area. Therefore, the area can be quite lively. There is quite a substantial shopping centre with lots of restaurants and entertainment.
Coventry has had three Cathedrals. The one I walked around was the second one, St. Michael’s, which is a ruin.
There are some lovely old buildings around the Cathedral.
It was a bit nippy outside and getting dark when we went to have a look at The Cathedral. There is a lot more to see and do if one has the time. Will definitely come back during daylight hours.
I’m a sucker for pretty Christmas lights. 🙂
