The City of Coventry and its surroundings

Situated at the heart of England, the City of Coventry lies in an area surrounded by some of the most attractive countryside in the County of Warwickshire. The City is within easy reach of Kenilworth with its ruined sandstone castle, Leamington Spa with its Regency and Victorian terraces, the county town of Warwick with its famous Mediaeval Castle and the Tudor town of Stratford upon Avon, which is now a shrine to the English playwright William Shakespeare.

The City of Coventry is also a popular tourist centre, being noted for its contrasting ancient mediaeval and modern architecture. Symbolic of this feature is the siting of the new Cathedral adjacent to the ruins of the old. The University enjoys the facilities and attractions of the City Centre, and is situated directly opposite the new Cathedral.

Coventry is easily reached by road, rail and air, there being a half-hourly intercity rail service to and from London, taking just over an hour, and the International Airport at Birmingham is only 15 minutes away. There are also direct coach and rail services operating between Coventry and all the UK major airports.
