As I grew up in Cov, you've got to love the statue of Lady Godiva. What other City can boast a big bronze naked lady as a centrepiece ?

Never really given the statue much thought as it always been part of the scenery. With pubs and shops coming and going it does serve well as a useful landmark for giving and receiving directions.

Grand statue, but you must stop in the Herbert to see the Collier painting to make your trip complete.

You really can't miss the statue, it's right in the middle of the square in the main shopping area of Coventry city centre. It's a nicely done up area of the city and very open, and is lit up lovely in the evenings. It's also...More
