Coventry Cathedral

Description

Coventry Cathedral is a place of celebration, hosting events, concerts and exhibitions throughout the year.

Coventry and its Cathedral were devastated by the Blitz
on 14 November 1940, leaving the old Cathedral ruins behind. Sir Basil Spence, architect of the new Cathedral, suggested keeping the ruins as a memorial of that fateful night. The resulting design is breathtaking and is one of Coventry’s outstanding features. The site has numerous tributes to peace and reconciliation, including the Charred Cross and the Statue of Reconciliation.

Internationally recognised as a beacon of hope, Coventry Cathedral is an inspirational space for reflection.
