The restoration of some of Coventry’s most ancient buildings to boost the city’s visitor economy and city image in the 2021 City of Culture year

Funding: Total Cost: £1,548,320, Getting Building Funding: £489,212

The two remaining Medieval city gates and the timber-framed cottages at Priory Row will be fully restored and converted to provide unique accommodation for visitors to the city. These photogenic historic buildings dating from the 14th and 15th centuries are remarkable survivors and will generate income for Historic Coventry Trust allowing ongoing educational and community projects.  The project is the catalyst for wider area regeneration working with the Council and Business Improvement District company.
