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.

It has been moved and re positioned over the years and recently the council have made a fantastic effort at pedestrianising the area! I was very impressed when i first saw the improvements and the square itself has... More

Lady Godiva on her oss she has sat there for as far back as I can remember and and I am in my sixties. The story of Godiva and Leofric is well known with Coventry folk while you are standing by her look up at the clock and see if 'ol peeping Tom looks over her when the clock strikes.

It is worth checking out this statue when visiting Coventry, it is located in the square adjacent to the shopping area. Some history located within the modern buildings. According to a legend dating back at least to the 13th century, Lady Godiva rode naked (only covered in her long hair) through the streets of Coventry in order to gain a... More
