Living in Coventry & Warwickshire

Coventry is one of England’s great cities set in the beautiful surroundings of Warwickshire in the heart of England. The area provides plenty of variety in places to live, including city centre apartments, pleasant suburban streets, picturesque villages and lively market towns.

All are within easy reach of Birmingham and London and next to transport links to get anywhere in the UK and beyond.

The schools, colleges and universities offer excellent learning experiences and great routes into work. Major businesses are all around and we have a thriving economy.

And when it comes to entertainment there are plenty of options from taking part in or watching sport (which we’re well known for) to taking in a concert or play at the numerous great venues across the area such as the Royal Shakespeare Company or RICOH Arena.
