The historic Spon street was once a part of a route between Gosford and Birmingham which continued to be used until the 1960s when the new Inner Ring Road was completed. Historically the street has been a hub of Coventry's famous dyers and textile industries, and was later taken over by a number of watchmakers. After the Second World War ravaged the city, a number of medieval timber houses were moved from all over Conventry to join Spon Street's own surviving buildings in an effort to protect the city's architectural heritage. Today these medieval buildings have come to house a number of shops, restaurants and pubs. The street is a popular destination for tourists who are drawn to the quaint timber houses and the historic feel they lend to the entire street.
