Boasting a great nightlife, large sporting arenas like the 32,000-seater Rioch Arena, illustrious musical venues and a range of quality night clubs, you can be sure that Coventry's population of over 300,000 people are well looked after.
A concrete jungle nestled into the Warwick countryside, Coventry is probably most famous for its cathedral, one of the newest in the world. During the Second World War Coventry was bombed heavily by the Luftwaffe, a third of all factories in the city and almost half of all the homes were destroyed in the blanket bombing of November, 1940. The ruins of the old cathedral of Coventry are a particularly poignant reminder of the Blitz.
Following the aftermath of the Second World War, Coventry was rebuilt and much like the neighbouring city of Birmingham it began to develop a thriving industrial and manufacturing economy, with much of the countries car manufacturing coming from Coventry.
