Re: Logging around Coventry Uni, UK

Can't help with the accommodation, but I can probably give you some pointers on locations for photography.

Re: Lodging around Coventry Uni, UK

The University students services should be able to provide you help with that.

Re: Lodging around Coventry Uni, UK

Things to photograph: the old and new cathedrals, there are still a few medieval buildings (the Golden Sun Inn, the Guildhall of St Mary, Spon Street), Holy Trinity church, St John's Collegiate church, Ford's Hospital, etc in the city; the Lunt Fort (Roman reconstructed) at Baginton. The Transport Museum. The Aviation Museum at Baginton. Those will keep you busy for a bit!

If you can get out of the city a bit, Baddesley Clinton (medieval manor house) Coughton Court (manor house, where the wives of the Gunpowder Plotters waited for news in the tower room); Kenilworth Castle; Blakesley Hall, Birmingham; Soho House, Birmingham; Aston Hall, Birmingham; the Gun Quarter Museum Birmingham; "Little Venice", Birmingham.....

Will try anywhere accessible via public transport. Are there tubes (undergrounds, MRT, etc) in Coventry or just buses, Uber and taxi?

Re: Lodging around Coventry Uni, UK

Don't forget Warwick Castle, that's pretty close and well worth a visit.

But as I remember, it cost a small fortune to get in, the last time I went there...!

You can get to quite a few of the attractions on the Midland Red bus....if there any nowadays. And West Midlands transport buses, I guess. (I left Coventry 31 years ago, so I'm not too sure these days)

Yes Keith it's not a cheap day out I guess it's best to go when there is an event on when you can get jousting and archery demonstrations amongst other things medieval to get value for money.
