Coventry Transport Museum. In the heart of Coventry city centre, this huge Museum is home to the world's largest collection of British road transport, and a visit whisks you away into a world of stories of real people, real passions and real hope.You'll discover the stories behind the people who made Coventry the centre of the world's motor and cycle industries, and get up close and personal with the actual vehicles that defined some of history's most important moments. The Museum is laid out as a journey through time - you'll wander 19th Century streets and discover the first bicycles, carriages and cars, then explore the first car factories and gasp as you witness their wartime destruction in the Blitz Experience. The journey continues through the Boomtown, Spirit of Speed and Ghost Town galleries to bring you right up to the present day.A visit to the Museum brings you face to face with Royal cars, military vehicles, and cars that played vital parts in their drivers' life stories - none more so than the current Land Speed Record holding vehicle, ThrustSSC, which lives at the Museum. Not only can you marvel at this spectacular piece of British engineering, you can experience for yourself what it's like to travel through the sound barrier at over 760mph in the ThrustSSC Simulator.

Wander around the basin where old warehouses meet newly built craft shops and discover outdoor art along the canal which was voted as one of the top ten urban waterside walks in 2003. Located on high ground on the edge of the city centre the Y-shaped canal basin has fine examples of surviving canal architecture with more than 200 years behind it. Famous canal engineer James Brindley was responsible for the initial planning of the canal navigation and he continues to look out onto the canal until this very day - as a ¾ lifesize sculpture. New buildings named after canal engineers house little shops and artists studios.
