The Zu Nuneaton


Nuneaton can trace its origins back to a 12th-century Benedictine nunnery known as 'Eaton', parts of which still survive, around which much of the town grew. In more recent times, Nuneaton became a centre for textiles and manufacturing leading up to the early part of the 20th century and a significant producer of munitions during the war years.

Today, Nuneaton is home to around 73,000 people and is a flourishing town with a host of retail and leisure facilities. It boasts two shopping centres, the Ropewalk and Abbeygate, which, between them, offer a great choice of major high street names and smaller, independent shops. There is a good choice of bars, restaurants and cafés, ranging from traditional pubs to quaint tea rooms. Fitness fans are well catered for by the Nuneaton Academy Sports Centre, with its Olympic sports hall, 25-station health and fitness suit and a modern dance studio, and the Jubilee Sports Centre, which offers a range of both indoor and outdoor activities.

Nuneaton's Bermuda Park is a mixed leisure, business and industrial facility. Leisure facilities include a multiplex cinema, bowling alley, gym, a pub and a number of restaurants. North Warwickshire & Hinckley College's Innovation Centre is also located in Bermuda Park, and the rest of the development is dedicated to offices, warehouses and light industry, which provides a base for several high-profile national companies.

Thanks to its strategic location, Nuneaton offers convenient access to the M42 and M69 (via the A5). Nuneaton station provides fast rail links throughout the country, London is accessible in just one hour*. For international travel, East Midlands airport is approximately 30 miles away**.
