Not a lot really to say about it. Great statue and nearby there is a statue of peeping tom. I don't really do art and statues but it's pleasant enough.

Iconic and the symbol for Coventry. Set in a pedestrian square in the middle of this great City. It stands proud for visitors to see and photograph. A must visit if visiting Coventry.

Nice statute depicting the lady from Coventry's history. Situated in a square in the main shopping area. Can be difficilt to get a good camera angle to show the statue without surrounding shops in the background.

A beautiful bronze statue bringing some much needed originality to Coventry. The town centre is rather bland so the statue is a welcome sight and an obvious meeting place. There are plans for the development of the city centre so things might improve.

Not really much to see, but a very good statue with a brief history, worth a visit when in the area.

Sits outside the shopping centre, an impressive statue but chilly for the real Lady Godiva. Went to Coventry shopping, good shopping centre and lots of interesting independent shops around the centre.

This is coventrys main meeting place. This is a very nice bronze statue of a nude woman on a horse so whats not to love? On many a drunken night i have rode that horse with her. If they were gonna recast her tho I'd base it on Scarlett Johannson as her face is lacking a bit but her body... More

Really it's only interesting if you know the full story of Lady Godiva and can visit related places. Then you gain a fascinating insight into medieval Coventry

Right in the heart of Coventrys very own ground zero lies the historic Lady Godiva statue. Erected in 1905 by the lloyds bank company, this marvellous statue of its famous black horse logo sits beautifully in front of a primark fooling drunks into believing that horses exist. Fast forward 3 years and the addition of a naked lady was added,... More

As statues go - it's a very nice statue, but the surroundings are a bit grim. Fun to watch the pantomime clock nearby on the hour, but then that's about it. It's all based in the middle of a pretty ordinary shopping plaza.
