Coventry Watch Museum Project


Over the past few centuries, Coventry has been home to several industries of national significance. Watchmaking was first recorded in the city in the 1680's, but it was not until the 18th century that Coventry emerged as one of the main centres of the watchmaking industry in England. By the first half of the 19th century Coventry had even reached a position of national dominance. Proudly illustrating Coventry's influence within the British watch making industry, the Coventry Watch Museum houses a display of clocks, watches, tools, artefacts and family history records and much more. One of the cottages is reputedly haunted and several interesting vigils have been held there! Open Tuesday and Saturday, 11am-3pm.

Address: Court 7, Spon Street, Coventry City Centre, CV1 3BA
