The statue is in the city centre in the pedestrian area. it represents a nice lady figure on a horse. Worthy to have a look for a couple of minutes.

This statue is next to the Art Museum and it was a great talking point among the many visitors. We listened to a street singer who was very good, and some ladies raising awareness for cancer, donned frilly pants, on their heads, we had a good laugh. Lady Godiva would have approved.

The statue depicts the legend that is Lady Godiva and I think its in an appropriate spot in the main square for all to see. Its a statue so I am not sure there is much more to say, might as well see it while you are in Coventry.

Went to see the statue, have seen it before, but they've moved it again during the refurbishments of the city centre, so it wasn't where we expected it to be. It's now near Broadgate.

I didn't know this existed, it is nice to learn about the history of the place you are visiting. It is in an important area of the city in the main square, so it is easily found.

Then to find out she was an ancestor! Someone had decorated the statue when I visited so taking a photo was difficult, however she is in the Guildhall as well

It's a nice statue but it doesn't live up to its location. Would surely go overlooked should it be placed somewhere else in town.

A lovely statue in the centre of Coventry, situated under the old town 'Peeping Tom' clock. There is a revolution at the moment to get the 'Sky Blues' (Coventry Football Club back into the City, and unfortunately the revolution has decided to adorn her with their signature 'trademark' of the sky-blue ribbons to show their protest.....in fact, they have virtually...
