City Gates

Coventry's two medieval city gates have been restored by Historic Coventry Trust, finding new life as unique visitor accommodation in the heart of the city centre.

Restoring the gates

The City Gates were originally two of 12 gatehouses that punctuated Coventry’s medieval city wall.

With support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Coventry City Council Cultural Capital Fund, Coventry & Warwickshire LEP and the Architectural Heritage Fund, Historic Coventry Trust have restored Cook Street Gate and Swanswell Gate, removing them from the Historic England Heritage at Risk Register. In addition to sympathetic repairs, each gate has been internally adapted to holiday apartments, giving guests the opportunity to closely experience a special part of the city’s history.
