Claims to be historic. There are some old buildings, some turned into hotels and other uses. Many old and derlict. Bit of a dump to be honest.

The street is a pretty one to walk down, and there are some good shops to visit. Looking forward to going back and spending some more time exploring them.

Photo opportunity abundant at this location. Nice to see the mix of buildings. Make sure to include Spon Street on any tour of Coventry. The Cathedral and shops are both within easy walk of Spon Street and so there is no excuse for missing this.

This is what a lot of Coventry would have looked like before the Nazi's flattened it during the Blitz. This street has been well preserved and is worth a visit to get a flavour of 14th Century buildings. Yes it has been modernised. Yes it...More
