Coventry Central Pub Trail

Coventry has a variety of real ale pubs and bars, many of which are of historical, architectural or cultural interest. This trail takes you from one side of the city centre to the other and covers a diverse range of establishments. It is worth noting that some of the venues are not open all the time so it is worth checking before you undertake to visit them.

Further information about the pubs on the trail and others in the city, including opening times in many cases, can be found on.
