Award-winning Café & Gift Shop

We have a gorgeous on-site coffee shop at the front of the Museum, meaning that you can enjoy drinks, cakes and sandwiches at the beginning, middle or end of your visit – whichever you prefer.

Our museum shop is well worth a visit in itself – far more than just a gift shop, Past & Presents stocks a fantastic range of high quality and unusual gifts, from nostalgia to motoring, and we’re confident that your group will be inspired by the beautiful items on offer.


A beautiful place to stay

The iconic Telegraph building at 157 Corporation Street was home to the city’s newspaper for more than 50 years. Just imagine the buzz and bustle of journalists and machinists producing four printed editions every single day.

The scene is more laid-back since its conversion into a chic new hotel putting Coventry in the news with headline-grabbing features that bring style and comfort to the city.

Forme & Chase – our restaurant, bar and lounge is bringing back some authentic 1960s glamour. Then there are the 88 uniquely-styled bedrooms, including the Lord Iliffe Suite, which reimagines the original owner’s private apartment. Generators – our seasonal rooftop bar with a printworks-industrial theme – is a very cool place to watch the sun setting over Belgrade Square.
