This place is a unique historical space. The building is uniquely reconstructed after the bombings of World War. You must see this place when you're in Coventry.

Definitely worth going to see. It is right downtown so you can walk to a few other places; the mall, the university and other landmarks :)

The cathedrals are a must do for any visitor to Coventry. The contrast of the old and the new is incredible. The old with it's history and the new, whether you like the modern architecture or not, it is spectacular.

My visit to Coventry Cathedral was deeply moving. Architecturally, it represents the period - as you'd expect. But the thing that moved me most is the way in which the destroyed 14th century Cathedral is incorporated into the design. The many and varied elements that...More

Wonderful building with plenty of atmosphere. Uplifting in that it was all but destroyed yet here it is in all its glory.

Hi Pat, thanks for your question. The Transport Museum is separate to the Cathedral so unfortunately we can't assist with that. Their website should give you the information you need though. As EximiousTraveller has stated... More
