0 Best Coventry Attractions Every Tourist Must See

Coventry was hugely devastated during World War II, but it has since risen from the ashes to become great once again. Now, the surviving medieval streets from pre-war time intermingle with modern buildings. Many travellers go to Coventry to see the remains of the medieval cathedral, blended into Coventry’s backdrop beside the new, modernized place of worship built to replace it. The appeal of Coventry will always be the juxtaposition of old and new, providing a hybrid town made great again by the wonders of new design and the nostalgia of the ruin left behind by war.
