A symbol of peace and sanctuary, Godiva’s future home.
Located in central Coventry, Godiva’s chamber is designed to reflect its location and the Godiva legend.
Looking through the clear glass panels at either end of the house, you will see Godiva's chamber, draped with steel chainmail curtains. The eight stained glass windows will illustrate the history of Coventry over the 1000 years since the first Godiva.
We will be working on the development of Godiva’s House during 2013 with our many business partners in the city and the region who will help us make it happen. Godiva will be presented with her new chamber in summer 2014.
