Owner description: Celebrated as the UK's favourite 20th century building, Coventry Cathedral is known all over the world as a beautiful and unique venue. Designed by architect Sir Basil Spence following the bombing of the city in 1940 it was opened in 1962, and contains some of the finest examples of 1950's and 60's art and architecture in the country.
Useful Information: Stairs / elevator

Just behind our hotel so had to give it a visit, you can wander round the original for free but a charge is made for the new one, they hold walking tours for the two at 6pm and 7pm

Everyone should visit both the old and new cathedral. The information and tours are very interesting and everyone is always very friendly and helpful. If you are there around 4pm on a Sunday go to Evensong at the cathedral, its beautiful.

superb lots of historis atmosphere, warning if you haven't used your legs for a while the steps are going to cause you some aches later, but well worth the climb

Adapted for wheelchair users, café and guided tours available outside the cathedral. Interesting gift shop and special exhibitions throughout the year, incl choirs.

A trip to Coventry is incomplete without visiting what's left after the Nazis bombed the church. Very moving.
