Coventry Transport Museum
Coventry, just 20 minutes from Birmingham by road or rail, has a number of attractions well worth visiting. One such is this museum, which is devoted to British-made motor vehicles in a city famous for its car manufacturers - over 130 have been based in Coventry including Daimler, Jaguar, Rover and Triumph. Here you can see 230 cars, 90 motorcycles and 200 cycles, including some once-famous names that are now no more. There are also Edwardian vehicles as used by royalty and there is a display of model vehicles. More modern exhibits are also on display, such as Thrust 2 and ThrustSSC, the holders of the world land speed record, and prototypes of the latest in car design.
This attraction is Coventry's best kept secret! I went with my parents & 4 year old child, a fantastic experience for all ages, we spent 3 hours there and still didn't see it all. Also it is free of charge - donations welcome.
