Nuneaton

Although not a particularly interesting town, Nuneaton is the largest town in Warwickshire and it has several budget hotels and good transport connections, which makes it a good value base for exploring the surrounding region.

Nuneaton isn’t particularly popular as a tourist destination, although some people come here because of the literary connection as the birthplace of George Eliot. She spent her early life in Nuneaton and the town is depicted in her 1858 novel, Scenes of Clerical Life.

Although not technically in Nuneaton (it’s not even in Warwickshire), the big drawcard for many visitors is the Triumph Factory Visitor Experience, which includes a tour of the Triumph motorcycle factory, in nearby Hinkley, just a 10-minute drive from Nuneaton’s town centre.

The town is primarily a dormitory town with many residents commuting to nearby Coventry and Birmingham, which are 20 and 30 minutes away by train.
