During the Middle Ages, Coventry grew to be an influential and prosperous city of national importance. Later, it became a significant industrial centre, housing a huge bicycle industry in the nineteenth century and a key core of the British motor industry in the twentieth.

The M40, which connects to the city through the A46, is approximately 12 miles south of the city centre, south of Warwick, and offers an alternate dual carriageway and highway route to London.

Music and cinema

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Coventry was at the epicentre of the Two-Tone musical trend. Two of the city’s music events are the Coventry Jazz Festival and the Godiva Festival. On the Saturday of the Godiva Event, a carnival parade begins in the city centre and travels to War Memorial Park, where the celebration is held. The Coventry Music Museum, which is part of the 2-Tone Village complex, honours Coventry’s musical heritage.

The classic scene in the film The Italian Job, in which Mini Coopers are driven at high speeds through Turin’s sewers, was actually shot in Coventry, using what was then the country’s longest sewage tunnels, which were open because they were being built. Various locations in Coventry have recently been used in the BAFTA nominated film The Bouncer, all in the Game, also starring Ray Winstone (Ricoh Arena), the medical TV series Angels (Walsgrave Hospital), the BBC sitcom Keeping Up Appearances (Stoke Aldermoor and Binley Woods districts), and scenes from “The Shakespeare Code,” an episode of Doctor Who’s third series, were filmed in August 2006 on the premises of Ford’s Hospital.
