Eastern Green is a mainly residential suburb in the far west of Coventry, England, and was formerly a village in Warwickshire. Its most western area is Upper Eastern Green and the eastern area is Lower Eastern Green.,[1] though residents generally do not distinguish between the two.

The sub-district of Mount Nod is located between Lower Eastern Green and the A45 Coventy to Birmingham dual-carriageway. The suburb of Tile Hill North is to the south and the districts of Allesley, Allesley Green and Whoberley lie to the north and east. To the west is the boundary of the Metropolitan Borough of Solihull, including the village of Berkswell.

A small brook runs from the west to the east through Eastern Green. For parts of its course the brook is set in a narrow band of green land set with bushes and trees.

National Express Coventry route 10 serves the area, with serves running to Coventry city centre, Spon End and Whoberley.
