Free things to do in Coventry
Here are a few places that you can visit this summer for free!
Coombe Abbey Park & War Memorial Park
If you’re feeling up for a picnic or a walk, check out the two gorgeous parks in Coventry! Coombe Abbey Park is full of the most beautiful views, and although you’d have to take a bus or uber to get there, you can spend the whole day there walking around, having a picnic and hanging out with your friends. If you’re looking for something closer, the War Memorial Park is perfect for you. Bring your book, or cards to play with your friends and have fun!
Herbert Art Gallery & Museum
The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum is where you can go to find out more about Coventry’s history and see world-class exhibitions… for free! You can find out more about the legend of Lady Godiva, explore Coventry’s history from the 1500s onwards, see the ever-changing displays that are often created in partnerships with national museums and attend a wide range of events. Even better, in its preparation for the City of Culture 2021, the museum has redeveloped some gallery spaces to ensure that they deliver exhibitions at a higher standard. So, if you’ve been there before, maybe it’s time to visit again to see the changes and new displays!

Coventry Canal Art Trail
Coventry Canal Art Trail is the city’s longest park, which is about 5.5 miles long, and is located from the Hawkesbury junction to the city basin. On your walk, you can find an art trail, pocket parks, heritage trail and towpath improvements. Some of the artwork has been created by local schools and resident groups working with artists.

You may know FarGo Village as the place where all the cute boutiques can be found, but did you know that it’s the place where a lot of events and markets take place? If you’re looking for something exciting, FarGo Village is the place to be this summer! Also, if you do have some money that you want to spend, even better. This is the perfect place to support local independent businesses and keep them going.
Of course, you know TheHub where you probably spent a fair amount of time studying this year, but did you know that sometimes, the rooftop is open for you to go up to? There is a seating area up there where you can hang out with your friends or alone if that’s what you’re looking for. It’s not open often, and you may have to check the newest updates about it in TheHub, but if it’s open, it’s definitely worth a visit!
