Coventry suffered severe damage from bombing in the second world war which destroyed much of the city and it's historic cathederal. Coventry was targetted by the Germans for bombing as it was a manufacturing centre contributing munitions, engines and armaments to the British war effort. After the war the city was rebuilt with a new city centre and new cathederal built to replace those destroyed in the war. Places of interest in and around Coventry include: - St.Michaels Cathederal.
