I haven’t been to the Herbert for years and so it was nice to look at the Wildlife Photographer Of The Year and CASE exhibitions. They were very well staged and now I can’t wait to make a return visit and see more.

They have a wonderful gallery all about the history of Coventry especially the changing industry. This, together with the Transport Museum, makes you think Coventry is really proud of what it does. Why don't all towns have a gallery like that?

With the gallery on our left, we took the second right turn and at the end of that road is an open air car park. 5 - 6 minutes walk back to the gallery.
