From the ruins of the 12th Century St. Mary’s Priory, to the Medieval splendour of the ruined Cathedral of St, Michael, to the stunning 20th Century design of the ‘New Cathedral’, there is sure to be something to appeal to all tastes. You can also visit the Blitz Experience museum which tells the story of Coventry during WW2, or climb our magnificent spire, the third largest in England.


Visitor Info


Located in the heart of Coventry, finding the Cathedral could not be easier! We are a 10-15 minute walk or 5 minute taxi ride from the railway station, and about 100 metres from the main Bus Station. The main entrance to the Cathedral can be found off Priory Street opposite Coventry University or via St Michael’s Avenue from the City Centre. Visitors arriving by car can use Cox Street car park, located underneath the ring road (Sat Nav CV1 5GA). There are two convenient set down/pick up points in the heart of Coventry – Priory Street at the foot of the Cathedral steps – where there are coach bays for drop off only – and Hales Street next to the Transport Museum.
