Fargo Village is a great place for people who love art, quirky cafes, a used book store, a record store, vegan restaurants, etc. It has a cool, chill vibe to it. We had such a great time visiting and seeing all the sculptures and paintings.

I cannot believe I've never visited this place before. It's a little gem. So many unique little businesses and it's great to see. We'll be back here again when we're next in Coventry for sure.

There are limited parking spaces on site but there is a very large free car park not far from FarGo. If you access their Facebook page or website address it does give further information on there.
