Coventry.. place of my birth, still here 38 years later, most of my years have been happy here, but recently visited the birth place of my father.

I wonder if Coventry's one of those places you either love it or hate it! I love it! I've lived here all my life, my mum and dad moved here for work in the 70's. One of the best things is that it's in the midlands it's so close to all the main motorways and it's within easy reach of the north, south, east & west! of course as it's the middle!

So what can Coventry offer you as a visitor? History! Those devilish Huns air-conditioned Coventry during the 1940's (sorry, some of us are still a bit bitter about that) and you can still see the after effects of that in Coventry Cathedral. Our old Cathedral that is. Yep, we've got 2 Cathedrals! Well at the football we do sing "If you want a Cathedral, We've got one to spare" and we can actually mean it! Technically we've actually got 3 Cathedrals, as Tony Robinson & the Time Team discovered the first and earliest Coventry Cathedral in the only programme where they actually dug for longer than 3 days in 1 place. You can also see the City wall ... Read the complete review

not a pretty place - Advantages: shopping, cheap, large indoor market - Disadvantages: high crime rates, dull place, miserable people!
