Living in Coventry

A focus on education

Education is one of Coventry’s pillars, with a strong emphasis on providing a fulfilling education for students of all ages. Many of the city’s learning organisations are specialist colleges, such as Finham Park School for Maths and IT and Coventry Blue Coat Church of England School for Music. Coventry University and the nearby renowned University of Warwick help take this rich education further. Families can buy a home in this city knowing that their children can attend fantastic schools that are close by. 

Historic roots

If there’s one place history lovers should choose to settle down in, it’s Coventry. Buying a home here places you on the doorstep of a rich, diverse history that still flows through each street. 

Although the city is known for its hardships during the war years, there are still pockets of medieval history hidden throughout. Its location in Warwickshire means that there are an array of castles to visit, such as Warwick and Kenilworth, as well as three cathedrals. The transport museum is the largest in the UK, and the Tudor-esque Spon Street is known for its half-timbered houses in which independent shops and pubs currently reside.

If you’re not into history, there’s still lots for you to do. The sleepy canals and colourful parks offer moments of tranquillity, harbouring a wide variety of wildlife. Rivers Sowe and Sherbourne also flow through the city. For the sports enthusiasts, you can watch Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena or cheer on players at the rugby club. The established arts and music scene also comes with various events throughout the year. You can really make the most of this city from your Persimmon new build. 

Close connections

Whether you work in a different location or just fancy a day out, this location is closely connected to the rest of the UK. Stratford-upon-Avon is 30 minutes away, whereas Birmingham is a 20-minute train journey and only an hour to London. Buying a home here means you can work and visit some of the other great locations the UK has to offer, whether that’s the wider West Midlands or beyond.
