Nuneaton is a town in Warwickshire.
Nuneaton was heavily bombed during the Second World War, as the location of several munitions factories. Therefore, most of the town centre was rebuilt in the latter half of the 20th century.
The 19th century author George Eliot was born just outside Nuneaton, and many locations in her novels are based on the area. Nuneaton itself appears as "Milby" in her works.
Nuneaton is 32 km east of Birmingham. The town is close to the M6, M1 and M42 motorways so it is easy to reach by road from anywhere else in England. Nuneaton train station is an important railway junction and is served by trains on the UK West Coast main line.
