Impressive statue

Impressive statue in the city, reminding us of one of the things Coventry is known for. We came across it whilst shopping, it's in the centre of the town.

An excellent statue in the middle of town. Not many people from outside of town know that the legend of Lady Godiva is linked to our great city and so it is great that such a nice statue is here to commemorate her. It is always kept in excellent condition.

As well as the lovely bronze in the town square, we saw various paintings in the Herbert museum , and statues. She has a connection to our local church at |Stow, so good to see her, andf to learn about the real lady Godiva

The statue is in the middle of a shopping centre, worth a see as its part of coventry history but not a lot really to say about it

Statue of Lady Godiva in open shopping precinct which is for pedestrian so no cars to stop you looking around. Would have like more of the history in statue area.

If you are in Coventry or going to visit coventry, this should be the first place in your list, because this is what coventry is all about. This statue defines the history of coventry which is very interesting.

An iconic woman in the middle of the town....it is not much to say indeed. If you don`t know who she is you will need your phone handy to do some searches.

Not much to say about this although it's worth a quick look if you're passing by. There's not a huge amount of information to explain the story at the site itself but that's nothing that a quick look at Wikipedia can't fix. It's a bare lady on a horse. That's all.

After living in Coventry my whole life I never simply walk by this statue and always pause to have a quick glance! It has been moved and re positioned over the years and recently the council have made a fantastic effort at pedestrianising the area!
