New bars and eating places are springing up in the historic Cathedral Quarter. A huge entertainment and leisure complex is rising on a site where factories once stood.
Alongside the city centre's key visitor attractions, its world-class motor museum, the clutch of historic buildings and Basil Spence's extraordinary modern cathedral, a programme of festivals and events is breathing new life into the heart of Coventry.
