this wildlife-rich attraction.
Cheylesmore Manor Gatehouse
Wandering around the city it's sometimes easy to forget the
city is steeped in history. This is a reminder.
Coventry Cathedral
No visit to Coventry would be complete without seeing the old
Coventry Cathedral and maybe its replacement.
Coventry Transport Museum
Fascinating free day out for all the family. This is a great rainy
afternoon attraction.
Garden Organic
Ten acres of organic gardens to explore. There is also a restaurant and shop. This is one for a sunny day.
The Herbert Art Gallery
A stone's throw from the city cathedral The Herbert is well worth popping in for a free peek at the exhibitions.
Heritage Motor Centre
It's a bit of a drive from the city and not cheap but if it's expensive cars you're after then look no further.
Holy Trinity Church
One of the largest medieval churches in England, its roots stretch way back to the 12th Century ...

Kenilworth Castle
If you like history then you won’t go far wrong visiting Kenilworth Castle.
Medieval Spon Street
One for historians and drinkers - plenty of pubs and medieval buildings.

Midland Air Museum
If you want to find out exactly how brave the early pilots were
then this is the place to go.
St Mary's Guildhall
Shakespeare, Mary Queen of Scots, Henry VI ... to take a step back in time, a visit to the guildhall is a must.
Stoneleigh Abbey (Jane Austen tour)
Perhaps not one for children but will delight fans of one of
Britain's most famous novelists.
Stratford Butterfly Farm
This place is awesome, with hundreds of beautiful butterflies
flapping around before your eyes.
Warwick Castle
The ticket price will sting but you soon forget about it with
plenty of quality swashbuckling entertainment.
