The City of Coventry, UK

Coventry at night

Coventry is one of the most vibrant and thriving multicultural cities in the UK, with a world renowned reputation for peace, reconciliation, and friendship, welcoming people of infinite backgrounds from all over the world.

The city has a truly inspiring cultural history of coming together to triumph against adversity with a fierce but quiet pride, after famously surviving the most devastating aerial bombing attack in UK history during WW2, and forgiving foreign enemies, forming long lasting partnerships instead of conflict, rising again as modern city.

The Coventry Cathedral Ruins still stand today as a lasting symbol of peace and reconciliation, alongside the city’s beautiful new cathedral.

Set in the very heart of England, Coventry has a population of over 320,000 and is surrounded by the beautiful Warwickshire countryside and its historic towns.

Alongside this, a number of multi-million pound development investments are dramatically bringing the city into the 21st Century, whilst preserving beautiful traditional history and green spaces.

The city is proud to have led the way in pioneering world-first industry and innovation, from watchmaking to bikes, cars and aero engines, with more and more firms looking to invest and locate in Coventry. The successes of global firms Jaguar Land Rover and London Taxi Company have also led to ongoing innovation in the city with a number of major new developments.

Coventry is also home to two internationally renowned universities; Coventry University (Top-placed UK modern university in both the Guardian Good University Guide 2018, ranking 12th overall, and the Complete University Guide 2018) and University of Warwick (Ranked 8th in The Guardian Good University Guide 2018, 8th in The Complete University Guide 2018, and 9th in The Times and The Sunday Times 2018).

As such, the city hosts over 50,000 national and international students from that has resulted in a vibrant multicultural academic culture in the city.

The city’s innovative road and rail links also mean it is very easy to reach the whole of the country, making Coventry a fantastic place to live, learn, work, invest and visit.

Coventry has an incredibly bright future ahead – As such, the city is delighted to have been named UK City of Culture 2021, and will host a year of cultural celebrations.
