First stop was the bombed out remains of the old Cathedral, which was heavily blitzed in November 1940 as Coventry was one of the centres of armament manufacture during World War 2. The Cathedral is now an area of 'Peace and Reconciliation'.

This was the end of the tour and lunch beckoned so we went to the nearest Weatherspoons -
|Not sure how much is old or new, but pretty impressive|
After lunch we toured the Motor Museum and saw models of bicycles and motor cars both of which were made in the City. Daimler, Jaguar and Rover are the more famous names in the industry.
A great day out, albeit a little cold!
