Coventry was one of the top three manufacturers of clock and watches of that time alongside London and Liverpool. Another interesting thing about this city is that It is also known as a famous tourist attraction as there are a few ruined castles and cathedrals in Coventry.

The city of Coventry is a metropolitan borough in the UK and England. Like many other cities of England, Coventry is also centuries old and has a rich history; however it was not given the status of a city until the Middle Ages. According to the 2011 consensus, the population of Coventry is approximately 316,915 which makes Coventry the 11th largest city in the UK. It is one of the most bombed cities of the UK during the Second World War because the city was a centre for the production of weapons and other materials of war and their aim was to knock out Coventry as a major centre for war production.

Top Ten Things To Do In Coventry

There are many spots that one can explore in the city of Coventry. History is literally etched in its streets and you can also visit many of the ruined castles and cathedrals, as well as the famous St. Mary Guild Hall.

 

1. The Holy Trinity Church

Holy Trinity Church is a famous tourist spot in Coventry. This church is one of the only large historical buildings that has been left unscathed after World War 2. Holy Trinity Church is in the centre of the city of Coventry and this historic church dates back to the 13th century. The Church itself is very famous but the world renowned Doom painting steals the show. Doom paintings also date back to the medieval times where they used to be a must for the churches, unfortunately only a few countable Doom paintings are left now. The Doom painting at The Holy Trinity Church dates back to the 15th century.

 

2. Explore The Timber Buildings At The Spon Street

Spon Street is an old establishment of Coventry and it has many blocks of preserved timber buildings from the industrial era from the Middle Ages. Although these houses and blocks are so maintained that you may think that they have been just given an antique and black look on purpose even though that is not the case. Some of the blocks of this street were destroyed during the Second World War but as this street is situated at the edge of Coventry, many of these buildings survived. This street dates back to the 12th century.

The industrial era and the inhabitants of this street were mostly dyers who moved to Spon street as they used urine during the dyeing which would produce some harmful fumes and thus they were forced to move here. Moreover, many textile industries shifted here as they needed a river for production. Their fabrics became renowned as the fabric would not lose its colour and acquired the saying ‘true as Coventry blue’. However, later on, the Street became the main hub for the watch and clock making business throughout the 1900s. The Spon Street is now a very famous tourist spot.

 

3. Ruins Of The Caludon Castle

These ruins are now found in a park and interestingly this is where ‘A Midsummer Night's Dream’ was first performed. The locals of Coventry believe that the famous Shakespeare's play was commissioned by the Berkeley family of Gloucestershire. As the Berkeley family enjoyed a life of luxuriousness, they liked watching performances of popular musicians and many plays as well. Now the castle is nearly destroyed and only portions of it are left as the parliamentary troops destroyed the castle. This castle is a historical landmark of many legends.

 

4. Coventry Cathedral And Its Ruins

The original church was built between the 14th century and early 15th century. But on the night of 14th November 1940, during the Second World War the Nazi German aircraft carried out massive attacks on the city and it now ruined because the cathedral was bombed during this attack. Only a few parts of the Church survived, the rest were destroyed by the German bombers including the tower, outer wall and spire. The old and ruined church was not rebuilt after the Second World War to be left as a symbol of the severity of the war. Another church was built next to the ruined cathedral for symbolic purposes and both of these buildings were built from the same sandstone.

The ruined church is the tallest structure in the city, the spire of this church is 245 feet in height making it the third tallest cathedral spire in all of England.

 

5. Treasures of St. Mary Guildhall

This old Guildhall was built in the 13th century and has hosted many Kings and Queens from the Middle Ages. This site has a lot of antique things and treasures such as ancient armour, paintings, and stained windows.

The Guild was used as the main court of King Henry during the war of roses and an important relic from this era is still guarded here. There’s also a well known tapestry hanging in the Guildhall which depicts King Henry and Margaret of Anjou.

 

6. The Ford Hospital - 'Alms House For Old Ladies of Coventry’

This timbered hospital has been a safe space for the elderly of Coventry for over 500 years. It is basically not a hospital but at the time when it was built, it was named so because it provided the elderly housing and care and still does. It is also one of the historical sites of Coventry and it was founded by William Ford in 1509, a former mayor of the city. At first, it housed elderly and elderly couples but by the 1800s they changed their goal and expanded the Alm to 40 women, each woman was also given an allowance. Like many other historical sites of Coventry, this Alm was also hit by the bombs of the German soldiers and caused some damages and took a few lives. However, it was rebuilt and is still in use.

 

7. The Phil Silver Archival Museum

This Museum is dedicated to the famous American entertainer, Phill Silvers. It was opened in 2015 and its inauguration was widely televised. It is also the only museum in the world that is solely for Phill Silver. It is situated in a famous business and artisan hub of Coventry and attracts many fans from all around the world.

 

8. Speech At The White-friars Friary

This is the place where the Queen, Elizabeth I gave a speech. This friary is located in the remains of the Carmelite Friary which was founded in 1342. It was closed after 200 years of its opening during the English reform. It is believed that this is where the Queen gave a searing speech to the people from the first floor window and apprehended them for neglecting and not the following religion.

 

9. Cheylesmore Manor Gatehouse And The Black Prince

The Manor was founded in 1257 by the Earl of Arundel and later on, it was passed on to Queen Isabella who is believed to have spent a lot of her days here. She in turn passed the state on to her grandson, Edward, famously known as the Black Prince. This nickname originated from the black armour he wore on the battlefield and his cruelty against enemies on the battlefield. He was also an heir to the throne but he passed away before he could inherit the throne so it was passed to his son. The Black Prince also spent a lot of time at this Manor.

 

10. Lady Godiva And Peeping Tom Clock

There’s a legend in the city of Coventry where Lady Godiva rode around the city in protest. It is still not evident whether this actually happened or not but the locals claim that it did happen. This clock was built as a tribute to Lady Godiva which shows her riding her horse and a peeping Tom who can not help but gawk at the Lady. This peeping Tom is believed to be eventually killed or blinded because he couldn’t stop looking at the lady so he was punished for his lechery. This public clock springs in action every hour when a naked lady and this leering peeping Tom appears.

 

Top Ten Facts About Coventry

Coventry is not short of legends and myths. It also has many ruined castles and cathedrals and there are many interesting and legendary facts about this old city.

 

1. The Legend of Lady Godiva

The locals of Coventry believe that Lady Godiva, wife of Earl of Mercia who founded a church in Coventry, rode on her horse all around the city in protest of the unfair taxation reform but the astounding part is that they claim that she rode around in nude. This legend emerged 250 years after her death. Even though Lady Godiva was indeed a real person, however, there is no strong evidence that suggests that she rode around naked. However, there are many statues of Lady Godiva around the city of Coventry and there is also a very famous public clock which is a tourist attraction, that showcases the figurine of Lady Godiva riding her horse in nude and a peeping Tom gawking at her after every hour.

 

2. Coventry Suffered From Many Raids During The Second World War

As Coventry was being used for war production during the Second World War, this city suffered from many bomb raids by the Nazi Germans. Even though the UK had already cracked the code for Enigma and deciphered the attacks they would carry out on the city, Winston Churchill decided to not do anything about the foretold raids as it would have alerted Hitler that the codes have been cracked. Meaning, the city was sacrificed for the greater good.

 

3. There Are Many Ruined Castles And Cathedrals In Coventry

There are a few ruined castles and cathedrals found in Coventry. These historical sites are really famous and each one of them has its own history. The ruins of Caludon Castle are remains of the 11th century, it used to be a huge mansion where the Berkeley family also resided. Before the ownership of the mansion was with Lady Godiva who is a legend in Coventry for riding around in her horse in the nude in protest. Another ruined site is the Coventry Cathedral which was bombed by the Nazi Germans aircraft during the Second World War. This medieval church was built in the 14th - 15th century but now it stands ruined as large portions of the church was destroyed by bombs; only the spire, tower and an outer wall are left. The spire of this ruined cathedral is the third tallest spire in all of England.

 

4. Coventry Pioneered Town Twinning

The city of Coventry was the one to start town twinning in Europe and now the city has 26 towns and cities. The first German twin city of Coventry was Kiel in 1947.

5. Birthplace of The Dragon Slayer

The legend has it that St. George was from Coventry. St. George was a very famous dragon slayer and patron saint of England and it is believed that Coventry was his birthplace. Before Lady Godiva and her husband founded the church in Coventry, St. George was the main figure in the medieval processions of Coventry.

 

6. Sir Frank Whittle, Phillip Larkin and Impresario Pete Waterman Were Born Here

The city was also the birthplace of the jet pioneer Sir Frank Whittle, and Sir Frank Whittle got the inspiration for his ideas for a jet-powered engine while he was living in Coventry in 1930. As well as the well known poet, Philip Larkin who was also from Coventry.

7. A 500 Years Old Treasured Tapestry In St. Mary Guildhall

The St. Mary Guildhall was a hub for famous figures of that time and it also used to host the Kings and Queens of England. This guild is the oldest in the country.

In the Guild, there’s a treasured Tapestry that is believed to depict King Henry and his wife Margaret of Anjou while surrounded by many people. It was installed in 1499 and is still hanging in the Guildhall.

 

8. It Is Believed That Shakespeare Performed In St. Mary Guildhall

Although there’s little evidence to prove this, it is believed that William Shakespeare used to perform in the St. Mary Guildhall as a young boy. It also believed that William Shakespeare was among the crowd to witness the Mystery Plays of the famous Coventry cycles of plays, to entertain the ruling authority of that time from King Henry V to Elizabeth I.

 

9. The Third Tallest Spire of The Ruined Coventry St. Michael Church

This cathedral dates back to the 14th - 15th century. This beautiful Cathedral in Coventry was bombed brutally during the Second World War by the German soldiers which resulted in immense amounts of damages. In turn, the church lost much of its structure and the remainder of the church are the tower, spire and a wall. The spire of this cathedral is the third tallest spire in England at 295 feet.
 

10. ’True As Coventry Blue’

The dyers and textile industries in Coventry had to relocate to the edge of the river because their dyeing process would create harmful fumes and thus they were forced to move. They moved to the famous Spon street and the textile industry there started producing a rich blue colour which would hold its colour, this made them really famous and Coventry became the fourth wealthiest town in England right after London, York and Norwich in 1370. This is how the phrase ‘True as Coventry blue’ originated.
