In the heart of Coventry city centre, this huge Museum is home to the world's largest collection of British road transport, and a visit whisks you away into a world of stories of real people, real passions and real hope.You'll discover the stories behind the people who made Coventry the centre of the world's motor and cycle industries, and get up close and personal with the actual vehicles that defined some of history's most important moments. The Museum is laid out as a journey through time - you'll wander 19th Century streets and discover the first bicycles, carriages and cars, then explore the first car factories and gasp as you witness their wartime destruction in the Blitz Experience. The journey continues through the Boomtown, Spirit of Speed and Ghost Town galleries to bring you right up to the present day.A visit to the Museum brings you face to face with Royal cars, military vehicles, and cars that played vital parts in their drivers' life stories - none more so than the current Land Speed Record holding vehicle, ThrustSSC, which lives at the Museum. Not only can you marvel at this spectacular piece of British engineering, you can experience for yourself what it's like to travel through the sound barrier at over 760mph in the ThrustSSC Simulator. ***Please Note*** Coventry Transport Museum is undergoing a major redevelopment programme during 2014 and the early part of 2015. The Museum remains open throughout this work but you are advised to check the Museum's website to see how your visit may be affected.*** « less

First built in the 1340s for the merchant guild of St. Mary, with its magnificent medieval interiors, and fine artworks the Guildhall offers a window into Coventry's glorious past. Once a prison to Mary, Queen of Scots, and even a playhouse where Shakespeare is thought to have performed, the Guildhall provides a fascinating free experience for all ages, at the historic heart of the city. St. Mary's Guildhall is available for weddings, meetings, conferences and private functions, whilst in the vaulted undercroft beneath St. Mary's Guildhall is the atmospheric Godiva's cafe, offering tasty snacks and refreshments. « less

For... more » Owner description: Step back in time, and explore Coventry's Medieval past at the Priory Visitor Centre, Priory Gardens and Undercrofts. For hundreds of years, the ruins of Coventry's first Cathedral ,originally founded by Earl Leofric and Lady Godiva, lay hidden beneath the city centre. In 1999, the Coventry Archaeological Team and the TV programme 'Time Team' began to excavate the site, uncovering the remains of medieval buildings as well as a stunning 14th century wall painting, and relics from nearly 1000 years of Coventry's history. Today, visitors to the Priory can explore some of the incredible finds from the excavations, discover the amazing story of Coventry's first Cathedral, and walk in the footsteps of our medieval ancestors on a tour of the beautifully preserved Priory Undercrofts. Guided tours of the Undercrofts start at 11am, 1pm & 3pm, Monday to Saturday. « less
