Coventry is home to many students and has lots of fun things to see and do! In particular, for students with children, or with family members who are visiting, there are some great child friendly places to go! Here’s our Top Five:
The Belgrade Theatre is centrally located in town in the Belgrade Square and offers plays, concerts and pantomimes throughout the year and with tickets for children starting at £8.75, it’s a bargain! Also, they offer half term and weekend activities such as acting classes and holiday camps to keep the kids amused.
Coombe Country Park is one Coventry’s true gems, and with extensive grounds and a multiple play areas suitable for children aged 8 and above, it is the perfect place for kids to run around, get some fresh air and have a picnic! Plus, there’s a Discovery Centre, Gift shop and Pottery Studio too to make the most of your day out.
There is no charge to enter the park, but there is a small charge for parking on the grounds.
