Located in the heart of the West Midlands, with easy access to Birmingham, Coventry is a thriving city with a rich industrial heritage. With a population exceeding 300,000, Coventry is one of the larger urban centres in the UK.
The city enjoys excellent transport connections. The M6 provides routes into Birmingham and towards London, via the M1. Additionally, Coventry’s mainline station offers services to London Euston, taking just over an hour.
Coventry is a historic city, but much of its original architecture was destroyed during bombing raids in World War II. As such, much of the city centre has been rebuilt, with the city’s iconic new cathedral at its heart.
The city centre is a vibrant, diverse hub for shopping and leisure activities, while Coventry University’s campus main is located right in the city, helping to give the area a young, energetic buzz. Just outside the city, the world-renowned University of Warwick brings more students to the area from all over the world.
The UK government awarded Coventry the title of UK City of Culture for 2021. This accolade attracted a groundswell of arts and cultural attractions to the city, something which continued into 2022.
You’ll find live music and theatre at venues across the city, showcasing local talent alongside national and international artists. Coventry is also a great place for lovers of sport. Coventry City FC and Coventry United LFC bring high-level men’s and women’s football to the city. Meanwhile, top-level rugby union team Wasps relocated to the city in 2015.
