About this event

Coventry is a unique city, home to a rich history, ancient legends, pioneers of innovation and the arts and an eclectic mix of architecture.

On this walk, you will learn about

  • The legend of Godiva, her historical significance and why there may have been an agenda to whitewash her from history.
  • The loss of St Marys Cathedral in the dissolution of the Monasteries, how that changed Coventry forever and the other ways Henry VIII messed the city about.
  • Moonlight Sonata, the Blitz of the 14th of November 1940 and what authorities really knew before the attack.
  • The crucial part that Coventry was meant to play in the Gunpowder Plot.
  • The legacies of international peace and reconciliation which followed the destruction and rebuilding of St Michaels Cathedrals.
  • Six different theories as to where the name 'Coventry' came from.
  • Why Coventry has actually been a city forever, since "Time Immemorial".
  • The short-lived history of Coventry Castle.
  • The two time capsules of Coventry; St Marys Guildhall and Drapers Hall.
  • And much more.

This walk is very light and the tour will take approximately 1hour and 45 minutes.
