Pictures of Coventry
in the county of West Midlands
There are fine examples of medieval building to be seen in the town. These have been taken from various parts of Coventry and reassembled in Spon Street. Other pre-war building that remain include the Tudor almshouses of Bond's Hospital and Ford's Hospital. The picturesque and historic 14th-century Guildhall has minstral galleries and tapestries that are well worth seeing. The Herbert Art Gallery and Whitefriars are of note and a 'must see' is Lady Godiva's Statue which stands in the centre of the town.
Coventry has been at the heart of industry for many decades and has a great industrial past. It is also a City of business and commerce which offers the visitor a wide cultural experience. There are restaurants, inns and public houses, cimema's and theatres, good sporting facilities and excellent shopping centres. The centre of Coventry is traffic free and has pleasant spacious parklands. It is indeed a City of note and well worth seeing.

Random England fact:
Lincoln Cathedral was once officially the tallest building in the world for over 200 years, from 1311 (when the central tower was raised, surpassing the Great Pyramid of Giza which had held the record for almost 4000 years), until 1549 when the spire was blown down in a storm.
