Coventry is a city and metropolitan borough in the county of West Midlands. It is the ninth largest city in England and 11th largest in the United Kingdom as well as being the second largest city in the English Midlands, after Birmingham, with a population of over 315,000. The city is both an industrial centre and a cathedral city, while also boasting two universities.

Coventry claimed the status of a city by ancient prescriptive usage, was granted a charter of incorporation in 1345, and in 1451 became a county in its own right. By the early 20th century Coventry became a major centre of the British motor industry, home to both Rover and Jaguar. Although all car production has ceased to exist in the city since 2006 the design headquarters and head office of Jaguar still remain in the city. Coventry is perhaps most famous for its role in the Blitz in WWII when Adolf Hitler singled it out for heavy bombing raids. The attack destroyed most of the city centre and the city's medieval cathedral and killed 568 people. A new cathedral was built in 1962 as a replacement.
