Coventry is located in the county of West Midlands (West Midlands (county)) although historically (Historic counties of England) speaking, it is part of Warwickshire. Coventry is the 10th-largest city in England and the 12th-largest UK (United Kingdom) city overall. List of English districts by population based on Census 2011 figures, Coventry is the 10th-largest city in England and the 12th-largest city in the UK proper with a population of 316,915; after London (1st: 8,204,407), Birmingham (2nd: 1,074,283), Leeds (3rd: 750,683), Glasgow (Scotland) (4th: 598,830), Sheffield (5th 551,756), Bradford (6th: 523,115), Manchester (7th: 502,902), Edinburgh (Scotland) (8th: 495,360), Liverpool (9th: 465,656), Cardiff (Wales) (10th: 346,100), Leicester (11th: 329,627) and Wakefield (12th: 326,433).

Coventry is situated north of Warwick. It is further from the coast than any other city in Britain (City status in the United Kingdom). Although harbouring a population of almost a third-of-a-million inhabitants, Coventry is not amongst the English Core Cities Group due to its proximity to Birmingham. Approximately half a million people live within 10 miles (16 km) of Coventry city centre.

Coventry was the world's first twin city (Twin towns and sister cities), when it formed a twinning relationship with the Russian city of Stalingrad (Volgograd) (now Volgograd) during the Second World War. The relationship developed through ordinary people in Coventry who wanted to show their support for the Soviet (Soviet Union) Red Army during the Battle of Stalingrad. A part of the city centre at the entrance to the Lower Precinct is named Lidice Place.

Coventry Cathedral is one of the newer cathedral buildings, having been built after the destruction of the 14th century cathedral (Coventry Blitz) church of Saint Michael by the German Luftwaffe on 14 November 1940. Coventry motor companies have contributed significantly to the British motor industry. The city has two universities, the city centre-based Coventry University and the University of Warwick on the southern outskirts.
