Coventry is a city in the West Midlands of England. It is around 100 miles Northwest of London, and 20 miles Southeast of Birmingham and has around 320,000 inhabitants.
Owing to the extensive damage which it suffered in bombing raids in World War II, Coventry is a city with a relatively young aesthetic. The majority of the town centre, and even the cathedral, are almost exclusively 20th Century in origin. In spite of this some older housing is available away from the centre. In areas such as Alderman's Green one can find properties which would suit growing families who desire a quieter area of residence with good schools and convenient facilities. In recent years the city centre has undergone further extensive redevelopment, and as a result of this there are many new apartments and smaller homes available for those with a professional's budget.
Owing to its large student population, and constant redevelopment Coventry is a relatively safe bet. Property in the centre of town will always retain its worth, whilst those in the suburbs will always have value to those who require long term family homes.
