  • I'm a bit surprised this is on TripAdvisor. As the name says it's a statue of a Lady Godiva, otherwise known as a topless lady sitting on a horse. It's an iconic landmark of Coventry but hardly someth...  more »
  • The statue is very prominent in its position and without doubt enhances the area around it, also it is one route to the cathedral if you want to do a sight seeing walk of the city.  more »

  • Was fun to sit with my son and watch the world go by. Only down side was the African people with there large amp blasting noise out at deafening sound although when a lady from cv1 came they turned it down. This needs addressing in our city.
  • A master piece with a very wonderful related history. You need to search the net to understand the sacrifice of lady Godiva
  • A lovely monument that represents our history (and that gets dressed up on occasions)
  • It's a statue. That's for sure. Very busy around it most of the time.
  • Beautiful Statue of Lady Godiva in Broadgate ....the City Centre of Coventry Town ....... Lady Godiva was the wife of the Earl of Leofric .... they between them owned most of the Land in West Mercia ...... The Earl of Leofric wanted to put the Taxes up .....the people of the City was in arms as they were Poor and couldn't afford to pay anymore .....Lady Godiva a compassionate caring person ......said to her husband the Earl of Leofric that she would ride Naked around the City ....if he would detract from raising the Taxes ..... not believing that she would do it he agreed .....Lady Godiva did as promised ....and rode round the City naked .....bearing in mind though she wasn't nude as one imagines .... for a Lady to go out without out all her regailia on ....ie Headdress and Jewlery ....was considered as naked ......she did have a simple slip on to cover her modesty .....😊
