Coventry driving tips
Coventry is easily accessible within a few hours from most of the major English cities and is well-served by nearby motorways and main roads. Here are our top driving tips:
If your journey to or from Coventry is likely to include Manchester or Liverpool in the North West of England, you will need to choose between the M6 motorway or the M6 toll road. The latter is usually a quicker route, but comes at a price between around £4 and £10 depending on the type of car you’re driving and the day and time.
The M45 was the first motorway to come close to Coventry and connects the area with the M1 to London or the North East. If you’re not keen on traffic jams, the M45 has one of the lowest volumes of traffic on any UK motorway.
Coventry has an inner ring road – the A4503 – which runs all the way around the city centre and offers the easiest way to get around and see all of the main attractions and significant buildings.
As with all cities in the United Kingdom, most parking available is in car parks that require pay and display or passes. Weekly passes are available from the City Council costing £17.50 for seven days.
The current cathedral in Coventry was built in the late 1950s and early 1960s next to the site of the city’s second cathedral, which dated back to the 15th century. The building was destroyed during the Coventry Blitz in November 1942, however the ruins remain and are an essential stop for any visitor to the city.
Another significant ruin can be seen on the outskirts of the city, a historic castle built by a nobleman called Sir William Bagot in the 15th century.
Also dating back around 500 years but in much better condition is this stately home, which has an intriguing history. Here's a taster: priest holes (where Catholic priests hid to avoid capture), links to both a plot to murder Queen Elizabeth I and the famous Gunpowder Plot.
Coventry Transport Museum
