The statue is at the centre of what has now become a large square. Before, there used to be a road. The square itself is home to a market once or twice a year. Overlooking the statue, hidden on the top floor of the shopping centre, right behind Lady Godiva is a statue of Peeping Tom. Also, when facing the... More

This is the famous statue of Lady Godiva, it is central in Broadgate. Go into the Herbert Gallery nearby and find all about Lady Godiva. Some wonderful paintings of her and gives you a full account of how she became Lady Godiva

It is a statue but it represents the legend which this city is so known for! The status is nicely located at the center of the square surrounded by the best know shopping brands like Primark. Would surely recommend a stroll by.

Although in a shopping centre really easy and accessible to view the statue surrounded by flowers? Well kept too.

It's an iconic statue for the city and the area around it is much improved. However, I think they should move it to in front of the council house to make it a feature - it looks a little lost in the middle of the shopping area.

The square is always busy and buzzing with people. It's funny to see when the hour chime rings every single person stops to watch the show.
