Get Licensed claims its research shows Coventry's to be the 'worst place in the UK for a night out'

Ryan Smith 2nd May, 2022

COVENTRY nightlife has received a scathing review after research conducted by Get Licensed deemed it to be ‘the worst place in the UK to go on a night out’.

The research gave Coventry an overall score of 2.12 out of 10 for the overall night out experience in the city, ranking it 50th in the league table.

The data showed that Coventry has 8.67 clubs and bars for every 100,000 people.

The city’s population of 369,127 only has 68.54 pubs for every 100,000 people living there, and the average price of a pint is £3.77, much higher than 2nd placed Telford’s record low price of £2.60.

Coventry has a country low Numbeo safety index score of 29.38 out of 100, while the survey said the worries of being mugged, robbed or being victim to a violent hate crime were high.

The statistics also showed a score of just 22.23 out of 100 when it came to being safe whilst walking at home at night.

A further breakdown of the data showed that Coventry’s overall safety score of 1.29 out of 10 was the second worst in the country, while Cov was ranked 48th in the list of the UK’s best drinking spots with a score of 3.22 out of 10.

Get Licensed compiled its data for the number of bars and clubs from TripAdvisor, while the number of pubs in each location was found using CAMRA’s whatpub.com.

Each city’s population was found from The Georgraphist and Numbeo’s data was used to track a range of safety related categories.
