A large cathedral city in the West Midlands, Coventry is perhaps greedy in having a total of three cathedrals. It is well served for transport, close to Birmingham and has a wealth of its own industry.
Where being ‘sent to Coventry’ was once a bad thing, this is definitely not the case anymore. Coventry is a thriving cathedral city, well placed in the heart of the country. As a part of the West Midlands, it is close to the great urban sprawl of Birmingham, as well as other popular towns in the area, like Nuneaton and Royal Leamington Spa. The business traveller coming to stay in serviced apartments in Coventry will find that, despite Birmingham's proximity, Coventry is in and of itself a major centre, with a population of over 300,000. Rare among the manufacturing towns and cities, Coventry retains its status as a centre for engineering and, in particular, motor manufacture, which it has had for over a century. Although, as with just about everywhere, there is a growing service sector.
Coventry is near several motorways, making it easy to reach for those coming to short term rentals in the city. It’s main railway station is on the West Coast Main Line, connecting London and Birmingham, while Birmingham International Airport is only 11 miles away.
