Coventry’s main attraction is St Michael’s Cathedral, one of the newest in the world. Positioned next to the remains of the old building which was bombed to destruction during the Second World War, St Michael’s houses many interesting artifacts, including a cross made from nails from the ruined building, and Graham Sutherland’s world famous “Christ in Glory” tapestry.

A city rich in a history related to transport boasts the Midland Air Museum, as well as its own Transport Museum, featuring a record-breaking collection of cars, and a more mainstream museum and art gallery. A reconstructed Roman fort just outside the city is worth a visit, and there is also a police museum at the city’s main Police Station for those who enjoy the more sinister side of a city’s past.

An Olympic-sized swimming pool, and well established football club form part of the sporting side of the city, whilst the Coventry Jazz Festival, and the Godiva Festival showcase the excellent musical side of Coventry and are well worth a visit for the relaxed tourist. There are several theatres around the city, and events also take place in the open, such as at the War Memorial Park and Butts Park Arena.
