Luggage and bags:
Whatever you choose to use!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Comfortable flat shoes or your walking boots. A rainproof coat. Something warm - but layers are best!
Photo Equipment: A good digital camera
Miscellaneous: The Good Pub Guide and the Ordnance Survey maps of the area.
Although we have plenty of lovely, sunny days we also have plenty of wet ones too. At least if you bring a brolly you won't be caught unawares!
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: There can be a lot of wasps around during summer months so insect repellent / ointment for sting relief might be a good idea, especially if travelling with children.
Photo Equipment: Everything should be readily available. There are several good photographic shops within the city centre.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Coventry's not near a beach but there is an open air swimming pool in nearby Kenilworth.
