Lots to see - we had a guided tour which was well worth while although they were not widely advertised in the cathedral. All parts very good and thought provoking
Joining the old and the new, and encouraging peace and reconciliation amongst citizens and nations, you can almost taste the atmosphere as you walk around and through the site. This is a real place with raw emotions for folk to visit and should not be missed

Love the old Catherdral and how they have joined the old with the new cathedral, the Cathedral had a lovely atmosphere,

Bombed out ruins of what was once a beautiful cathedral. Not reconstructed, but left with no roof to commemorate the WW2 bombing of Coventry. Charred beams from the old roof have been used to construct an altar where the original altar stood, decorated with a cross made of nails from the roof timbers that have been welded together. Quite a... More
My wife and I are not religious by a long shot but, as keen photographers, we always visit Cathedrals that allow photography; there is something about Cathedrals that lend themselves to photography. The Café is fine, nothing to shout about, but if you're after a snack and/or coffee then it's worth the visit during your tour around the Cathedral. The... More
