The City of Coventry (pronounced as KOV-an-tree), is located to the west of England on the historic river Sherborne. During the history of Coventry and during the cities time, the city was a big settlement for many centuries and years, but it wasn’t until the late Middle Ages that the city was given city status.

Coventry is a large city with a population of 345,300 people as founded back in 2021, making this the 10th largest and biggest city in England and the UK (United Kingdom). However, The Region after the city of Birmingham is separated by the Meriden gap which is famously known as the green belt. Population in 2022 is 388,000.  

Historically, the city of Coventry was part of Warwickshire, but back in the 700 AD, it was said that Coventry was home to what was known as a Saxon nunnery, which was founded by a Saxon called St. Osburga. During the 18th and even 19th Centuries, the city of Coventry was one of the main UK centres for manufacturing watches and clocks. In the year of 1340, it was said that the merchants of Coventry formed into a guild, which looked after everyone’s interests. During this time, St Marys Hall was built for the guild.

However, historically during the time of the romans, they founded a large fort on the outskirts of what is now known as Coventry at Baginton. However, when the 20th Century came into work, the city of Coventry became a large and important centre for the British Motor Industry, which unfortunately made the city a huge target during the second world war. 

In the current millennium, the cities culture for the arts and entertainment got a lot stronger especially when the cities sky dome leisure and entertainment center opened back in the year 2000, along with the music museum back in 2013.

However, the city has also got three different universities which are the following. Situated in the heart of the city is the university of Coventry which is home to a student population of 38,430 students. Along this, it is also home to the university of Warwick which has a student population of 27,278 students, but also is the home to the Warwick Arts Centre. Furthermore, what is interesting about Coventry is that in 2021, the city was awarded the City of Culture award which is given by the department for digital and culture. 

“My partner and I have been foster carers in Northampton for two years but became disillusioned with the previous agency. Fostering UK made the change extremely easy.”
