Welcome to Coventry


The city faced a further setback with the collapse of the British motor industry in the 1980s, but is undergoing a resurgence today thanks to its redeveloped and expanded university, and its vibrant cultural scene, which has seen it awarded the UK City of Culture 2021, bringing renewed investment and new openings during the run-up, and events and celebrations throughout the year.
