Right in the heart of Coventrys very own ground zero lies the historic Lady Godiva statue. Erected in 1905 by the lloyds bank company, this marvellous statue of its famous black horse logo sits beautifully in front of a primark fooling drunks into believing that horses exist. Fast forward 3 years and the addition of a naked lady was added,... More

This is in the centre of the shopping area and right opposite the Lady Godiva moving clock. We caught the movement and bells at 3pm

In the very heart of the city centre, this life size statue only adds to the Godiva Legend. Wonderfully executed in a very romantic style it leaves you wondering about the past but realizing that the her story is still very much alive and a proud integral part of Coventry.

If you visit the city centre the Godiva statue is nigh impossible to miss. It is a story personal to Coventry and its folk lore so you are unlikely to see anything similar.

This statue is situated in the very center of Coventry. Nothing special in my opinion but there are shops around it which are worth visiting.
