Best areas to live in Coventry

Whether you’re looking for a charming English village to reside in, a leafy suburb with excellent schools, or easy access to city life with its many bars and shops, you’re in luck, as Coventry offers all of this in abundance.

Allesley

Just a 10-minute drive out of the centre of Coventry, Allesley’s positioning to the A45 makes it a popular place for commuters to both Coventry and Birmingham, with the UK’s second biggest city less than a 25-minute drive away. Allesley Park offers plenty of green space, and it’s even home to a golf course and a walled garden. The good schools in the area make Allesley hugely desirable for families of all ages.

Earlsdon

Earlsdon is so close to the city centre, it’s within walking distance – you can reach the train station in 15 minutes on foot. Its bustling high street (Albany Road), is home to an array of cafes, restaurants and shops, and nearby Spencer Park offers much-needed beautiful green space. Often cited as one of the best places to live in Coventry, houses here sell for an average of £280,598.

Kenilworth

If you’d prefer to live outside of the city centre, then the town of Kenilworth, located 6 miles out of Coventry, could be the ideal area for you. Probably most well-known for Kenilworth Castle, there are lots of open green spaces in this town, in addition to quaint pubs and a range of shops. Accessing Coventry couldn’t be easier, with trains running every 10 minutes. The average value of a property in Kenilworth is £420,813.

Radford

The average cost of a home in Radford stands at just £174,617, with properties tending to be smaller, 1920s and 1930s homes. Situated just 2.5 miles north of the city centre, for people working in the city, Radford is an ideal place to live. The local community centre, post office, supermarkets and petrol station mean that everything you could possibly need is right on your doorstep in Radford.

Finham

Just a 6-minute drive from the city centre, the average cost of a home in Finham is £301,798. The local primary school has been rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, which makes it popular amongst families with young children; and the number of shops, bars and restaurants in the area cements it as one of best places in Coventry to live.

Things to do in Coventry

Whilst Birmingham and Bristol are both close enough for a day trip, you’ll want to spend lots of your free time in Coventry itself, to experience all of the amazing things the city has to offer!

Wander through the War Memorial Park

Dating back to 1921, the park was opened as a tribute to the soldiers of Coventry who lost their lives in WW1. The park was then worked on during the second world war, and you can still see the large concrete blocks by the Coat of Arms bridge. Wander through the grounds as you admire the history and view the commemorative plaques; and children in particular will love the Splash ‘n’ Play park, that opens up during the summer holidays.

Visit Kenilworth Castle

A 20-minute drive out of Coventry lies the grounds of Kenilworth Castle, just waiting to be explored. This castle played a huge role in the last 900 years of English history, and you’ll get to discover the castle keep and the dramatic views from the tower, as well as the Elizabethan garden, and the old stables, which is now home to a charming café.

Admire Coventry Cathedral

Coventry Cathedral is actually the city’s third – the Prior Church of St Mary’s was built in the 12th century, followed by the Cathedral of St. Michael, which was bombed during WW2. You can still see the remains next to the current cathedral, which acts as a memorial; and you can also climb to the top of the Bell Tower, to discover beautiful views of the city.

Discover the Lady Godiva statue

A noblewoman of the 11th-century, who married Leofric, Earl of Mercia, Lady Godiva is famed in Coventry; as according to legend, she rode naked on horseback through the city’s streets to protest her husband’s excessive taxations. The story goes that all but one person averted their gaze, with that “Peeping Tom” becoming blind. Whether or not that story is 100% true, you can visit the Lady Godiva statue in the Broadgate area of Coventry city centre.

Enjoy the collections in The Herbert

Part gallery, part museum, discover the range of exhibitions on offer, including the archaeology collection, which includes everything from Roman artefacts to ceramics dating back to the Stone Age; to the British Life and Landscapes collection where you can see some of L.S. Lowry and Paul Nash’s paintings.
