urgent help needed

by bhatnagar

Hi m an Indian travelling this week to UK for a short holiday.
I want to attend the England vs Autralia one day cricket match scheduled for 28th June. For the same what should be the best (most economical as well as the fastest) way of getting to Birmingham from Coventry and back?

RE: urgent help needed

by leics

Train probably.........www.nationalrail.co uk for train timetables, www.thetrainline.com for fares & ticket purchase. Coach will be cheaper, might take a bit longer and be less frequent: www.gobycoach.com. Remember, both will takeyou into the centre of Birmingham, so you need to think about your onward travel to Edgebaston (I assume).

Trains here are pricey, I think the bus would be cheaper - try this website for prices:

RE: urgent help needed

Birmingham and Coventry are both in the West Midlands, and so are covered by the same cheap local transport system. The cheapest way (but not the quickest) way of getting between the two cities is by bus. As a rough estimate it takes about 30 minutes to get from the center of Birmingham to the center of Coventry. I can't remember the prices as I've not taken one for many years, but the absolute most you will pay should be 1.10 pounds each direction. If you are going to be doing the trip regularly there are week-tickets that can save you a lot of money, for example the Adult Regional Off Peak Travelcard covers you for a week of off-peak (9:30am - 3:30pm and from 6:00pm onwards) travel all over the West Midlands region for only 6.30 pounds.

Trains are a lot quicker, and station to station it takes about 10 minutes, but you pay for it.

The train costs about £3.70 return from coventry to Birmingham New Street. Make sure you get the Virgin train, this is quicker and takes around 20 minutes, the central train stops at all the little stations along the way and takes over 30 mins.

if you are going to edgbaston cricket ground you can get the number 47 or 45 bus, they go down the pershore road and it only takes around 10 mins

Travel Tips for Coventry

Walk around the city centre...

by peterbarton

Walk around the city centre and look beyond the 1960's buildings to find medieval builds. Go to the toursit centre at the back of the cathedral and ask to see the cellar. Amazing find. Eating dinner in Browns restaurant whilst England were playing Germany. The place was empty, the food was good and the English won for a change.

What have the Romans ever done for us?

by munchie_cat

If history is your cup of tea then get yourself down to the Lunt Roman Fort. Located on the southern outskirts of Coventry in Baginton, it is only a 15/20 min drive from the city centre.
This is the site of (unsurprisingly) a Roman Fort, although it was intended to have only been a temporary fort, it actually stayed in place for 20 years.
Excavation of the site started in the 60s and turned out to be quite a surprise to the archeaologists as it did not follow the shape of all the other conventional forts. Here, they have reconstructed one of the gates, ramparts, granary and, unusually, a gyrus which they think was used to retrain horses they had nicked from the like of Boudicca to be distributed among the romans. But I won't waffle on too much, you need to go and see the place yourself.
I should also add that you sometimes get roman re-enactors here and it is the home to one of the leading roman re-enactment groups, sometimes seen marching down to the local pub in full dress. A sight worth catching I might add ;-)

Lots of them depending on what...

by Vickster

Lots of them depending on what you feel like doing at the time.

Good nightclubs include Icon and Diva at the SkyDome.
Other good nights out include Scholars (Far Gosford Street) and Scream (Gosford Street).
For theatre we have the Belgrade Theatre and the Butts College.
And we have cinema screens at the SkyDome and the Showcase.
There's often live music at the Colosseum as well many of the city's pubs,
The Arts Centre offers live music, theatre, cinema and exhibitions.
Whatever you like there's usually something happening that will appeal to everyone's tastes.
In the summer months and at Christmas / New Year there are also a number of outdoor events organised in the city.

Coventry Cathedral

by jayhawk2000

Here is a detail from the window of Coventry's new cathedral. I used part of this photo for question no. 4 of my Europe quiz. Did my hint help you at all? Coventry is where Lady Godiva supposedly rode naked through the streets, seen only by Peeping Tom.

Have you taken my MYSTERY TOUR of Europe yet? It's a travelogue on my Europe page.

Transport Museum and Millenium Place

by Airpunk

The Millenium Place has a couple of things worth to notice, even if you don't go into the Transport Museum. First, the arches and bridges over Millenium suqare which must give an astonishing panorama at night. Then, of course, the transport museum. It focuses on cars as Coventry was a home to several assembly lines until the late 20th century and has always been a city with a focus on the car manufacturing industry. A small part is also dedicated to aviation as also parts for aircraft manuifacturers were produced here.
At the Millenium Place, you will also find the statue of Sir Frank Whittle. The legacy of this coventrian was the invention of the turbojet engine which he developed independently from his german counterpart von Ohain in the 1930s. However, none of them can claim this invention without considering the efforts of romanian Henri Coanda who flew a motorjet-powered aircraft in 1910 without further following its development. Part of the museum is also dedicated to Sir Frank Whittle and his invention.
