A city in the West Midlands. Some may call it a concrete jungle but its until you walk into the City Centre to see its a really nice place, the people are friendly and its actually safe to walk through in broad daylight (unlike Birmingham, Nottingham, Leicester and other areas in the West Midlands). Its true that people say we are a minority of chavs, but its true Leicester (a city with a similar population count) have more chavs living there. Home to an under-achieving football team and a poor Rugby team, but the best Ice Hockey and Speedway teams in the UK. If you wish to live in the Midlands, Coventry is the place to be.
Guy 1. Hi, where are you from?
Guy 2. Coventry, how about you?
Guy 1. Coventry? What a horrible place! Birmingham is better.
Guy 2. At least we can actually walk through the City Centre at 9:00am and not get shot...

Coventry, a large town located in Rhode Island filled with nothing but fast food restaurants, walmart, cvs, and a super stop and shop. The majority of coventry kids attend coventry high school, a recently renovated disgusting building which is filled with trailer park trash, hippies,ghetto thug wannabes, and the group of upper middle class kids who think they own the ground everyone walks on. Since there is so much to do in this town, (sense the sarcasm), everyone of those groups just named also qualify for the pothead group. Parties are usually located at Carbunkle, or at a random house in western with a woodsie backyard (although that statement pertains to almost every house in "c-town") Those kids who live in coventry but have attended a private school, they are the kids you used to be friends with, until they became better than you. The only time you will see these kids is at a dance, or when they are looking for one of the CHS keggers in the woods. If you live in coventry, your friends are in coventry.. no where else, people who live here dont get out much... unless ur lookin to pull a hey buddy at an out of town liquor store.

A city in the middle of England. Everyone thinks its full of chavs and concrete. It isn't. Visit it before you make assumptions. Much nicer than Manchester or Birmingham. Coventry has the best ice hockey team in England. Footbal is rubbish though.
Out of Towner - I don't wanna go to Coventry!
Coventry person - I don't know why. Its cool.

Coventry is a city located in the West Midlands, England. It's not a bad place, although there is a large infestation of 'Chavs' which is why Coventry has been nicknamed 'Chaventry' But it's not Chavnetry at all, its just Coventry thank you very much. The indie scene has hit Coventry over the last year, and as you walk through the lower precient, a bright sight of high waisted, scruffy haired, polka dot wearing indie cindys will usually greet you. We like to think of Coventry as a place full of tallent, and we've got proof! The Enemy and The Specials are both from Coventry and are both really sucessful in the music industry. The indie scene of Coventry hopes to banish the Chavs still making the McDonalds look untidy.
mc shitter: "I iz from Chaventry, iz it."
josh: "It's Coventry mate, now please take you and your chav friends and go to Birmingham, maybe?"

A cold and brutal concrete jungle classified as a city due to it's cathedral in the centre of England. Basically you don't wanna go there. Think of it as an English Kosovo.

Home to the first manufactured car, daimler . When coventry wants to do something , it always wants to be better than others . For example they have one of the biggest Tesco in this country and biggest super hospital in this country.

However Coventry is a concrete jungle. Home to an eyesore ringroad which is shaped like homers donut that conquers the whole city centre.

Dominated by large group of chavs and uni students. infact the "city" is more lively during term time. The town is a ghost town every sundays and school holidays. At the heart of the "vibrant" shopping district (where the naked lady godiva statue exist, that's where the goths/punks hang out.

fact:-Coventry is dominated by older people
why:- because the city is boring and the younger generation are moving out
I think we better leave coventry
