A quiet sanctuary in the centre of the city, the only complete survival of the three spires of Coventry. Look out for a rare pre-reformation painted fresco uncovered during an earlier restoration with one of the first known artistic depictions of Hell.

If you are visiting Coventry Cathedral it is worth spending a short while in Holy Trinity Church as well. It is just over the road from the cathedral and illustrates what the interior of the ruined church on the cathedral site would have looked like.

A lovely ornate church that is very welcoming. Went with my Girlfriend on sunday last month and the modern service comes before the more traditional high church service. Not being particularly religious, I was made to feel very much so welcomed by everyone. A lot of cyclists also travel in so the steps outside are a great place to meet... More

This is the most wonderful building, steeped in history, beautiful to look at, very interesting to research. The staff are friendly and helpful with information and they are so welcoming. The services there are so moving and the peace when you just sit there is overwhelming. I love this place so much and visit every chance I get.

medieval gem with incredible carvings and paintings. Lovely feeling inside. Seems dark but let your eyes get used to it, then look at the treasures.

Attended a wedding here and the church is magnificent - the wedding we went too had about 120 people inside and you could have probably doubled that! The Stain Glass and the architecture was brilliant!
