Coventry for three days with kids...what would you do?

I am staying in Cov for three nights / four days over half term (New Premier Inn in Cov City South made me an offer I couldn't refuse even though I only live 10 miles away).

I will be leaving the car at home, and I will have kids (aged 8 and 5) with me. The missus is working but may be joining us for one, maybe two of the nights.

I am currently planning a schedule for our stay. However would like to throw this open to forum members. Where do you recommend we visit / eat etc?

Diz

Thanks for taking the time to offer your thoughts.

I am still discovering Coventry, and am familiar with the obvious city centre choices (Transport museum, cinema, swimming, The Herbert) was looking for some of the less well known activities, or things slightly out of town.

The Uni sculpture trail is something that I had never heard of and looks promising. Touch wood for some reasonable weather for next week!

Cheers!

If there is any Ice Hockey on at the Sky Dome get the kids to that. Great night out.

... stay somewhere else! (or maybe I've just been unlucky in my experiences of Coventry).

Take them to the Cathedral, it is fab - even the little one should like the stained glass windows/walls of the Baptistry, and some of the modern art within. It is just not like any other Cathedral!
