    Coventry Airport - East of West ?

    by Airpunk Written Sep 6, 2008

    Classic Wings flights to the WEST
    1 more image

    Favorite thing: If you need to go to the airport for something else than getting a Wizzair or Thomsonfly flight, please make sure that you are at the right place. There is the main terminal which looks like a container village and is located at the eastern side of the airport. And there are facilities in the west, kilometers away from the mentioned terminal buildings. This includes the offices of the Air Atlantique Group and several flight schools. Flights with ClassicFlight.com, which is part of the Air Atlantique Group, usualy start from the western side with West Gate being the meeting point. While public transport to the terminals is pretty good, you’ll only find a bus stop in the nearby village of Baginton, if you want to get to the western side.

    Fondest memory: I did not inform myself well enough and so I found myself pretty stranded with twenty pounds at an airport without any ATM and miles away from the place where I wanted to be. Finally, I had to call for a cab to bring me to the West Gate. My twenty pounds were reduced to ten and I still had no idea how to get back into the city center after the show.

    Crown court

    by Imbi Written Nov 25, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Coventry crown court is located in Much Park Street. It is the place where all the criminal and other case proceeds. It is one of the city’s new buildings. It is obviously nothing really not important place but the building is centrally located and seems good so why not stroll down to have a look of it.

    Fondest memory: On the 1st October 1988 we had a trip to Highfield Road to watch Middlesbrough play Coventry. They won 4-3 after leaking an early goal. Two players scored a hattrick that day - the Middlesbrough legend Bernie Slaven and Coventry's David Speedie. This has to be one of the most exciting football matches ever.

  • There is not much to Coventry,...

    by stuffitinme Written Sep 2, 2002

    Favorite thing: There is not much to Coventry, except for the cathedrals. The bombed out one is quite neat. You can see how the explosions occured on the sides of the surrounding buildings. Little bits of stained glass remain in what is left of the windows. Plaques will explain the dates of construction and destruction. The cathedral next door is the replacement. It was built in the 50's and has a rather creepy sculpture of Satan and St. Mark(or is it St. George?) stuck to the side of it.

    Fondest memory: Standing in the middle of the bombed out cathedral, and looking up and seeing the sky, 'cause there is no longer a roof! Hey, isn't this where Lady Godiva took her famour ride?

    Favorite thing: Visit the Cotswolds - which is what these pages are going to be about, it is just that Coventry is one of the nearest places (though the hills stretch down towards to Bristol!)

    Fondest memory: Honeymooning at the Lygon Arms Hotel in Broadway, Worcestershire; walking Cleeve Hill; shopping (and eating!) in Cheltenham; and visiting pubs and churches all over the hills.

    by peterbarton Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: 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.

    Fondest memory: 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.

    the strawberry bank at near by meriden(centre of england) offers a excellent menu for that special occasion. also a family run restuarant in barkers butt lane near the rugby ground in coundon called nortons offers a very good menu just pop in for a coffee. disabled people can loan motorise scooters, wheelchairs from the shopmobility situated by the car park at the rear of the precinct by marks & spencers. coventry caters quite well for the disabled traveller

    Favorite thing: Visit the sorrounding area - it's a lot more interesting than Coventry! There are stately homes and castles galore in Warwickshire, as well as some lovely historic towns and villages.

    Fondest memory: The wedding of my great friend Katrina.
