In the middle of a retail precinct. A shame that it is not in a more appropriate place. A wonderful story.

As statues go this one is okay. Its interesting to reflect on the history and legend that surrounds the Lady Godiva ride. However, the statue sits in a nice but busy square where you can find some interesting cafes and pubs along with other small shops. Its a great place for people watching. Just find a bench or seating area... More

Well, it's a statue in the middle of Coventry. I guess if you've made it to Coventry then you may as well have a look at the statue. Peeping Tom isn't too far away either. Not exactly mind blowing

This statue is in the middle of the city centre as lady Godiva is well known for riding her horse naked in protest of taxes, visit the museum to see the exhibition

The location is the most appealing thing about this, but other than that not very eye catching. Although the history behind it is very interesting.

We went to see this statue and yes it was just another statue. Not much look at really and nothing to do there. Pretty damn ordinary really and one not to hurry to see. Actually you could bypass it and you would not have missed anything

I am from Coventry so I know it has been here and moved a couple of times. But if you are from another part of the UK or elsewhere in the World and you are in the City Centre take a look.

Situated in the newly refurbished Broadgate which is now a pedestrian area. Try to time your visit just before the hour so you can see the Lady Godiva/ peeping Tom clock as well.
