This is Coventry's party piece lady Godiva, and this is the statue to focus on on her. Such a shame that the shopping precinct is now looking very tired and dated.

Proud of place in the city centre. A lovely statue that remembers some of the history of this old city. Looks lovely in the pedestrian area. Worth checking out in the town.

One of the reasons Coventry is famous is because of Lady Godiva. Nice to see her remembered in the middle of this busy shopping square.

Lady Godiva is such a famous part of Coventry’s history that it would be a shame to ignore her. This statue is a well-executed traditional work and is worthy of its city-centre position.
