Restored or original it's great
Feb 2020
Suspect restored as it's very close to the bombed cathedral, this is still a lovely building and contrasts very well with modern buildings

Delightful buildings
Feb 2020 • Solo
Bayley Lane is right next to Coventry Cathedral and offers delightful photograph opportunities of a cobbler street steeped in history. Thought to be home and founded by great Earls of Chester, there are now pubs and restaurants dotted in close proximity and the remains of a portion of the old Coventry Cathedral right opposite.

Interesting historical area

I popped down the small walkway to the back of pizza express to see this historical building. Part of the castle wall is also supposed to be here but I couldn’t find it.

Half timbered survivor
May 2019 • Couples
This building is right beside the bomb damaged Cathedral and is a remarkable survivor as a result. It is well preserved and is a good example of how historic Coventry had been prior to the destruction of 1940.

dinner normal pub fare but desserts are amazing
Jan 2017 • Couples
We normally go to the playwrights but is was closed. So we walked round the corner and saw the establishment. Checked tripadvisor and it came out ok. Staff very helpful and friendly and it was half empty but still had a good atmosphere. Husband ordered fish and chips for us both with mushy peas without the chilli. It came in a wooden box and the peas in a dish. It was hot nothing great and saying that we would come here again. What sets them apart was the dessert. I had the eaton mess which was 2 large meringues sandwiched with ice cream in the middle, cream, the best raspberry sauce ever, topped off with fruit on top. I didnt think I could eat it all but it was so light it was gone in a flash. Hubby had the cheesecake with the raspberry sauce and he said it was amazing. So even if you dont have the dinner, lunch try one of the desserts.

A rare medieval survival of the wartime destruction of Coventry.
Nov 2015 • Solo
This medieval timber-framed building miraculously survived the destruction by aerial bombing of almost all of Coventry's historic centre 75 years ago.
It is believed to be 500 years old and it was good to view the exterior of it despite being soaked by the pouring rain.
It is just over the road from the remains of the old cathedral and St. Mary's Guildhall is next door.

Amazing Medieval Timber Framed Building - a hidden gem
Mar 2015 • Friends
Walking away from Coventry Cathedral, we accidentally came across 22 and 23 Bayley Lane. Number 22, also known as 'The Cottage' was built around 1500 and is a grade II listed building. It's situated in what's known as the 'Cathedral Quarter' of Coventry. We arrived there at about 5pm on a Saturday, so too late to see if we could visit inside, but just looking at the outside of the buildings was amazing, to think how long ago they were built and are still standing. Definitely a hidden gem. If you're visiting Coventry Cathedral, make sure you walk a little way up the lane and come across these incredible timber framed buildings.
