I took a trip to Coventry a few days back. The city has been named the UK City of Culture for 2021. It was one of the many worst-hit cities throughout the Blitz. I visited the Coventry cathedral, which has astonishing stained glass windows and appears glorious. It’s a moving site with various tributes and the reminders of the city’s evolution.
Places one can visit
I went to the Bagot’s castle situated in the outskirts of the city. It was built during the reign of King Henry and thus has a great historical touch for the same. It was then rebuilt during the by William Bagot somewhere around the 14th century. It is a beautiful marvel to sight and the best time to visit is April and May. Then I went to Charlecote Mill; which is the only working watermill in the country. It has the buzz always and has the charm of Victorian times.
I then explored the British Motor Museum which has the largest collection of historic British cars. I also visited the Compton Verney which was a home to a famous family for about 500 years. It has been turned from the derelict of the century-old mansion to a gallery of international acclaim and offers high quality of sightseeing and facilities.
I visited the most famous castle park, which is like a gem nestled in Coventry. It houses Coventry’s only castle’s remains. It is one beautiful space to have relaxation and enjoy the breeze. I took a walk around the historical monuments belonging to the 14th century. I also went to Arbury Hall, which is an ancestral home of Viscount.
It is recommended that you stay here for at least four days so that you can complete the sightseeing of most.
