In a relatively quiet corner of England resides the 9th largest city in England. After being heaving bombed by the Luftwaffe in the Second World War, Coventry has been a city born out of tragedy but has risen like a phoenix from the ashes and has taken its place as one of the most popular and populated cities in the country. The city was made a target due to the concentration of armaments, army vehicles and engine plants that existed in the area. Everywhere was firebombed, even St Michael’s Cathedral which managed to somehow withstand the days of bombardment, however only a shell and the spire of the building remained intact.
However, showing true grit and that famous British fighting spirit that exists in each and every one of us, Coventry has steadily rebuilt itself into the metropolis that it is today. The evidence of which can be seen in the motor industry boom in the area in the 1950s and 1960s, the general rebuilding of the city under the government’s Gibson plan and the striving to turn Coventry into a shopping and sport centre of England.
However, enough with the pitiful history of the besieged city and let us examine why Coventry should be on the list of places to visit for you, and why it should be done in either a black, white or pink stretch limousine, or if having an extended family visit, one of the prestigious H2 or H3 Hummer Limos.
If you are fan or follower of some of the biggest names in music, then you will find that many of them decide to air their musical talents to the UK via performing at the Ricoh Arena. Being host primarily to Coventry City Football Club, a side who ply their trade in the Championship Division of the Football League, the Ricoh Arena has also hosted such bands as Bon Jovi and the incredibly fun and exciting Red Hot Chilli Peppers. For music on a relatively smaller scale, you are invited to visit the Skydome Arena which doubles as both a ice skating and musical venue. This establishment has housed such acts as Judge Jules and Girls Aloud.
As hinted to earlier, sport is one of the main themes that runs through the veins of the city and every self-respecting Conventarian. The city can proudly boast some of the most diverse and energetic sports venues and teams in the country. Coventry City have already been mentioned but Coventry also caters to; ice hockey with Coventry Blaze, speedway racing with the Coventry Bees, American football fanatics can follow Coventry Cassidy Jets
As well as this Coventry can boast some of the best restaurants and nightclubs in the country, so after your day of entertainment and sightseeing in the city you have a multiple amount of opportunities to dance the night away before you get back in your hire Hummer limousine and head on home. Just remember to choose Lux Limos wheee service is a right not a privilege.
