An impressive statue which has been in situ in Coventry city centre for many years. Celebrates one of the most important heroines of British as well as the cities heritage. Well worth seeing if you're in the area, located near to the cities cathedrals.

Worth a visit for some photographs, but a shame there is nowhere nearby that explains the history behind Lady Godiva. While you are there take a look at the clock when it strikes on the hour to see peeping Tom.

Statue is good but not enough to warrant a visit. Coventry needs to work harder on its image for tourism
