Living And Working In Coventry

Joanna Clare

The city of Coventry is situated in the West Midlands which is located in central England and is only sixteen miles from Birmingham and a little less than one hundred and ten miles from London. Coventry is considered to be a large and multi cultural city. The nearest international airport is Birmingham Airport and if travelling by rail, a journey to London can take you an average of less than an hour and a half.

A unique city, Coventry dates back around a thousand years and rapidly became an influential, prosperous and wealthy city. With specialised industries such as ribbons, weaving, watch making, bicycle making and car manufacturing, Coventry has been ingenious over the years and always managed to expand and excel into new industries just as one was beginning to fade into the background.

Coventry is a diverse city and has a strong and highly skilled workforce and this competence is apparent in several sectors throughout the city. Advanced manufacturing, digital and creative, energy, professional and finance, rail, automotive, aerospace and vehicles are all thriving industries with the city being home to many very well known and prominent companies which have excellent global reputations.

With two universities, Coventry University and the University of Warwick, both are trusted and well respected universities that are popular with students from all over the world that are attracted to study here not only because of the excellent teaching and facilities but also because of the friendly and supportive student environment. Coventry is ranked in the top 5 student cities courtesy of QS Best Student Cities Index 2022 which is fantastic news.

Last year, in 2021, Coventry was named UK City of Culture. Because of the rich diversity, it offers much variety in the way of shopping and dining out with a dazzling array of choices. For sports lovers there are also some very impressive facilities here.

Coventry has many attractions with plenty of museums. A small sample of these are the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, the Coventry Transport Museum and the Coventry Music Museum which are all definitely worth a visit. For nature lovers and those who prefer being in the great outdoors, the Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve  which is set in 220 acres or the War Memorial Park which is a Grade 2 listed park, will offer plenty of green space where you can enjoy the peace and admire the birds and wildlife. Venture a little further to enjoy the beauty of leafy Warwickshire with its amazing views and picturesque villages.

Coventry is a cathedral city and the modern cathedral is the third one to be built. The first cathedral was a monastic building of which a few ruins remain and the second was bombed during the Second World War.

Property prices are affordable at around £230,000 for an average home. With the city having been deemed as one of the best places to live in the UK,  it is easy to see why.
