Coventry Cathedral - St Michael

St Michael’s Spire stands majestically in the heart of Coventry city centre. Forming part of the Old Cathedral and its magnificent ruins, the spire is a lasting reminder of the Blitz of November 14 1940. The building remains one of the most important international symbols of peace and reconciliation in the world, and is one of the city’s three remaining spires.


Coventry Cathedral

Designed by architect Sir Basil Spence following the bombing of the city in 1940, the New Cathedral was opened in 1962, and contains some of the finest examples of 1950’s and 60’s Art and Architecture in the country.

Following in the footsteps of the Benedictine predecessors, a warm welcome is extended to all visitors of all ages and nationalities.
