Coventry is a city and metropolitan borough in the county of West Midlands in England. Coventry is the ninth largest city in England and 11th largest in the United Kingdom. It is also the second largest city in the English Midlands, after Birmingham, with a population of 315,80.
Coventry is situated 153 km northwest of central London and 31 km east-southeast of Birmingham.
Coventry Cathedral is one of the newer cathedral buildings, having been rebuilt after the World War II bombing of the ancient cathedral by the Luftwaffe. Coventry motor companies have contributed significantly to the British motor industry, and it has two universities, the city centre-based Coventry University and the University of Warwick on the southern outskirts.
The M6 motorway directly to the north of Coventry acts as an artificial boundary which precludes expansion into the Bedworth-Nuneaton urban area, as does the protected West Midlands Green Belt which surrounds the city on all sides.
