Attraction Information

Curious About Coventry gives an exciting glimpse into what makes this full of surprises city what it is.

Expand your knowledge, be entertained and challenged, whilst staying mentally and physically fit! Walks typically take 1 to 2 hours each, and are suitable all year round.

Walk 1: Theatre to Cathedral

From Coventry's famous theatre you are quickly immersed in medieval history, before taking a bizarre turn through a modern shopping precinct with a large statue of Lady Godiva at its end. Now you're back into olde worlde Coventry, with cobbled streets and plaques commemorating its history in all directions. At the end are two of Coventry's cathedrals: one razed in 1940, and the modern cathedral built in its wake.

Cathedral to Oasis

Starting at its third cathedral you will experience more of Coventry's history before descending a hill via its first cathedral, restored Cloisters, and a modern waterfall. Opening out onto a public meeting place, with its unique Time Zone clock facing the Transport Museum, you finish your journey of discovery in more peaceful climes at the delightful gardens of the late Lady Herbert: a ‘flowery oasis in central Coventry'.

Have fun getting Curious About Coventry!
