A Self-Guided Tour of Coventry’s Cathedral Quarter

About the Activity

Are you looking for a way to see Coventry without joining a tour group? Explore Coventry’s Cathedral Quarter at your own pace with this self-guided walking tour. Verity Tiff, a Blue Badge, Heart of England tourist guide, will show you around what was once the fourth most powerful city in England. This walking tour takes you through 1,000 years of history in what was once the best-preserved medieval city in England. See what’s left of Coventry’s three cathedrals: the original Abbey church of the Benedictine Monastery, (now the Priory Gardens), St Michael’s (which only became a cathedral in 1918, and is now the Cathedral Ruins), and Coventry Cathedral (or Coventry’s new cathedral, the first to be built after the war). Also, wander under Coventry’s Blue Glass Bridge, a modern folly, and through Lady Herbert’s Garden Please note: Entrance fees for any optional stops en route are not included. The Cathedral is free to enter but visitor donations are welcomed.
