Car and Van rental in Coventry
Coventry is the West Midland's second largest city and has a long industrial history of producing cars, munitions, bicycles, clocks and cloth. After being badly damaged during the Second World War, Coventry is now enjoying a renaissance as a popular university town, with good road and rail connections to London. The city benefits from two Enterprise branches; one in the north and one in the south. The North Coventry branch is just a couple of miles from the city centre at the corner of Kingfield Road and Lockhurst Lane. You can get there by bus in 15 minutes from the Pool Meadow Bus Station. The Enterprise North Coventry branch is also just a few miles from the Ricoh Arena, a prominent sporting and entertainment venue. Those looking for Coventry car hire can also use the South Coventry Enterprise Rent-A-Car branch at Siskin Drive. This is right by Coventry Airport, so it's convenient for anyone flying into the city.

Places to Visit Outside Coventry
Drive to Leamington Spa, a beautifully chic and thriving town. It's noted for its lovely Regency architecture and parks. Stratford-upon-Avon is an unmissable town to visit when you're in the area. This historic place on the river Avon, famous as the birthplace of Shakespeare, is a great theatre-going destination. Not too far away, near Warwick, you can sample Tudor life as it once was, at Charmecote Park, a magnificent manor house. Then, let your hair down at Drayton Manor theme park, only 21 miles away from Coventry.
Parking and Traffic Information in Coventry
Coventry benefits from a ring road, the A4053; this is a handy, dual carriageway that loops around the city centre. From here, you can access all the prominent places in the city, such as the cathedrals, university and shopping centres. The ring road's junctions are close together, so you need to be alert when it's time to turn off. Once inside the ring road, driving around the city centre is relatively easy, but a satnav is always useful. When it comes to parking, there are many options in the city centre, including Moat Street Car Park, Belgrade Plaza Car Park and the very central West Orchards Car Park.
