Coventry train station is the main railway station serving the city of Coventry, in West Midlands. Although Coventry's first rail station was built in 1838, a more efficient station quickly superseded it just two years later. Change and transition followed throughout the 19th century until the latest redevelopment in 1962, which coincided with the electrification of the West Coast Main Line. The station's modern architecture with its spacious concourse was rewarded in 1995 by English Heritage, making the structure one of 400 listed buildings (including a Roman fortification) located within the city limits.

Coventry is a city with transport at its heart. The world's first modern bicycle was built here in 1885, and the original British motorcar followed in 1897. Yet, the city is perhaps most famous for the rather unusual mode of transport chosen by Lady Godiva for her famous taxation protest in the 11th-century – riding naked on a white horse through the city's streets. The noble woman's statue in Broadgate is only a ten-minute walk from the station. Coventry is also the nearest station to Kenilworth Castle, just hop on the x17 bus to get there.
