Not really something I will spend time looking at.I think it has outlived its purpose.Having seen the destruction of the Motor Car Industry. The city is now a Ghost Town unfortunately all that remains is memories "The Death of a City"

I'm sure most of us have heard of Lady Godiva - now see the statue! If you are in Coventry, you may as well see it as it is very centrally located.

Everyone knows her story but being there are experiencing it is an altogether different experience. Dont forget to catch a glimpse of Peeping Tom just above the Lady Godiva Clock on Broadgate. Truly a must see if you are in Coventry.

We really loved our day in Coventry as it is a very beautiful city with a good mixture of old and new. The Lady Godiva Statue is located in the middle of a pedestrian square, surrounded by shops and restaurants, so it is east to see and the simple floral planting around its base add a wonderful splash of colour.

What a surprise it was after leaving the museum and going for a walk around. There she was in the middle of the square in all her glory. The friend of the people who got taxes dropped (along with her clothes).

Not a lot to see, just a statue to have your photograph taken by, but if you have heard the story of Lady Godiva I think because you don't have to pay to see it , it's worth looking at.

According to the legend around the 13th century Lady Godiva rode around Coventry Streets naked with long blonde hair to cover her body. All people were told to not look at her as she came by but one man did and was struck blind and later got the name Peeping Tom ( not sure if his name was Tom).
