  • Those warehouses reflect the set from: BBC Two - Peaky Blinders / opening scene / 02:33. The murky brown water, the brown metal structures, the neat red brickwork mixed with the painted white bricks, the wood of the two black blocks, the greenery of the trees, those small windows, those old signs pointing to places, that sculpture of the man, those narrowboats, to: 'Coventry' plastered alongside a building in uppercase / white - to that modest clock tower. ※ Sometimes I go there to think; to bask in the sun, while listening to: Moon of Honey Billie Zizi & Gun Metal Dress Billie Zizi § | Bandcamp > neon-keycard ____________________________________________________
  • Former industrial heart of Coventry's proud canal history. A quiet oasis seconds from the city centre situated immediately off the infamous Ring Road.
  • Can sit, relax, people is going there, have some small shops from easten europe
  • Could be nice but a bit run down.
  • A scenic route for a evening walk.

Where to stay in Coventry

A stay among the Gothic and Victorian architecture of the city center is within walking distance of the main attractions. Consider a rental room or B&B on the medieval Spon Street or near the canal. Both locations are scenic and conveniently located near the city center. Full of local eateries and shops, the Earlsdon area offers less expensive apartment rentals.
