Always good to see someone enjoying their visit to Coventry and planning for future visits. However, if the Clean Air Charging Zone had already been invoked, and if your car was not compliant then there would have been an extra £12.50 a day to add to the bill. This may be enough to put off people from stopping in the city centre and will give more business to the out of town and out of Coventry hotels.

Wearethemods Smile I booked these in February as I married a girl from Coventry and we go down 3/4 times a year. We stayed in the Belgrade Premier Inn. By the way it's the first time I've ever paid for overnight parking in Coventry and it may be the last, it was only because we took friends with us this time that I used the carpark and paid Big grin Wink Neil, I almost called in on Saturday night as we were back at the Premier Inn by 9pm as we had been out for a meal with the family

I believe the studs on the edge are there to deter skateboarders from using them for tricks. They do also however create a 'personal space' if you choose to sit there

Thumbs up You’re 100% right Smile but I didn't know about the skateboarders as they do a lot of damage to the edge of the walls, that's the main thing they are for.

For all the people living outside Coventry we had another lovely 5 days in the city centre last weekend for only £133 plus £13.50 for 7 day parking pass. I post this on here in case anyone thinks it costs the earth to stay in the city centre.

Thanks Dougie. It's always good to know and I very much appreciate your info as I'm sure do other 'out of towners'. Hope you enjoyed your time in Coventry. Gilly Wave

Prices might be a bit higher as the students start/go back and the science festival from 10th-13th.

On 2nd Aug 2017 9:27pm, Roger T said: I visited my friends in Coventry yesterday and as usual we mull over old times - Coventry and the things we got up to. The conversation then drifted on to what were the attractions on the stalls and we all immediately said "Home decorating". I don`t know if every front door had to be wood grained after the war, but there used to be a chap on the market demonstrating in front of a small crowd. He had a flat block of wood in front of him, on which he painted some brown scumble (he called it) then he applied a tool that was like a block of wood shaped rounded, like an old fashioned ink blotter. He pushed it up and down the block oscillating it as he went and lo and behold a wood grain finish appeared. The talk then turned to the perils of redecorating living room walls just after the war - no wallpaper available, so some went for a stipple finish which used to imprint the shape and colour of flower foliage in stripes up and down the wall. Does anybody remember those days of make-do and mend.
Yes Roger T, our front room in Wyver Crescent had the stippled effect obtained with a sponge and a coloured wash when wallpaper was not available. It was make do and mend during war-time and after. Edited by member, 25th Aug 2019 4:40 pm

Hello everyone Thumbs up I would just like to say I still look on your site most days, been some interesting topics over the last few months. Keep it up Smile I'll know more about Coventry than the wife's family that live there Wink Anyway, I'm pushing the Premier Inn in Belgrade Plaza again for the people that lived here at one time and would like to spend a long weekend in Coventry and think it would cost the earth. No way. I've just booked two five-day weekend breaks, May £127 and August £120. You may think it's a good way off but it will come round. This is off Premier Inn booking form so why wait to book (no need for any replies to the post, just trying to help): What happens if I need to cancel or amend my booking? Please note you have booked a reservation that can only be amended up to 14 days and/or cancelled up to 14 days from your arrival. It is Premier Inn policy that if you decide to amend and/or cancel your reservation after this deadline, you will be charged for the full value of your amends or the full value of your stay for every room booked

Hi Dougie, I always appreciate reading your posts about staying in Coventry, where and costs etc. Whilst at the moment we stay with my brother in Coventry the day will come when we will have to look for different accommodation. Thanks Dougie. Gilly Wave

Gilly. As you can see I'm not from Coventry but I married a girl from there 56 years ago, been taking her home ever since Wink We have a large extended family that live all round Coventry but with the prices we pay for accommodation we don't bother them and stay in the city centre. I book May/August as they are long, light (hot) days here, I can't understand why out of towners don't book a long weekend, Christmas shopping in Coventry this year, it's lovely.
