Coventry Transport Museum

As all British readers will surely know the UK Midland city of Coventry was very heavily bombed during the Second World War. Indeed a verb was born “to Coventry” which means to raze to the ground. The Midlands was a major target (second after London) because it was the UK home of vehicle manufacturing and of course for the War effort cars, bicycles and motocycles were paused for military machines. Indeed the symbol of Coventry is the Cathedral which was badly damaged but one damaged spire remained standing and still is to this day. The current Coventry Transport Museum was opened in 2015 and now is a truly magnificent place to visit and really should not be missed to anyone who appreciates British history and transport. Super place for adults and kids alike.

Coventry is special for me cos I “studied” at Coventry Polytechnic (now University) and I was awarded my degree in that wonderful Cathedral, then I worked for 12 years in the motor industry for Jaguar Browns Lane, Triumph Canley and then Land Rover Ltd in Solihull.
