Where should I buy in Coventry?

Coventry is England’s most central city, making it one of the country’s most well-connected and convenient places to live. Birmingham, Leicester and Northampton are just a short drive away, and you can get to London in just over an hour. You’re also just a stone’s throw away from Warwick Castle, Shakespeare’s hometown Stratford-upon-Avon, and Leamington Spa.

Not only does Coventry offer an excellent choice of things to do, there’s also a wide variety of property types to choose from. Whether you want a modern apartment in a stunning listed building or a family-friendly 1940s semi, there really is something for everyone.

To help you get started, here’s our guide to the 3 best places to buy in Coventry.

Whether you’re a first-time buyer or a homeowner hoping to take your next steps on the ladder, you can’t go wrong with Earlsdon. Home to War Memorial Park, Hearsall Common and Coventry Hearsall Golf Club, you’ve got a number of attractions and sports clubs right on your doorstep.


The city centre is a 20 minute walk or 5 minute drive away. So whether you’re meeting your friends for pizza, treating yourself to a shopping spree, or spending an afternoon exploring the city’s museums and galleries, you’ll never be short of things to see and do.

Local schools

When it comes to primary schools, there are a number to choose from in Earlsdon including Manor Park Primary, St John's Church of England Academy and Earlsdon Primary. For secondary education, consider nearby Finham Park School, Bishop Ullathorne Catholic School and Barr's Hill School.

Property price growth

Over the last year, property prices in Earlsdon were 6% up on the previous year.


Earlsdon historically was farm land outside of Coventry, but was developed when Coventry became a centre for watch matching in the 1850s. Even after the decline of watch making, Earlsdon continued to grow into one of the most popular residential areas of Coventry.
