Coventry Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral Church of St Michael, is arguably the single best-known visitor attraction in Coventry, and is also the city’s most iconic landmark.
The current building is actually the third cathedral to have existed within the city throughout its storied history. The first was St Mary’s Priory, which was founded in the 12th century, while the second was also known as St Michael’s Cathedral and this was largely destroyed during a bombing campaign in the Second World War.
However, the spire of the second cathedral survived and remains the tallest structure in Coventry. It also forms one-third of the city’s famous ‘three spires’ skyline. The current Coventry Cathedral building is situated directly next to the spire and the remaining ruins of the second cathedral. It is also notable for being one of the most modern cathedrals found anywhere in the world.
The new Coventry Cathedral building is open to visitors on Monday to Saturday from 10am until 5pm, and on Sundays from noon until 4pm. The ruins are open every day from 9am until 5pm.
