One of the UK’s largest cities, Coventry has been a centre of commerce and industry since medieval times, but following World War 2, the it was subject to visionary reconstruction which has seen it emerge as a modern and picturesque metropolis with a vibrant and energetic atmosphere. This bold approach to town planning came to be known as Coventry's 'Festival of Britain' architectural style.
Economic growth in the city is particularly strong for the UK, and as such Coventry is an important centre of advanced manufacturing, including automotive, rail, aerospace and motorsport.
Just an hour from London, Coventry has plenty to offer as both a business centre and tourist destination. Its mix of the modern and the historic ensure that it is a town that continues to surprise and entice, whilst its central location make it a great base for those needing to reach the rest of the UK.
