Spon End is a suburb of Coventry, England. It is situated west of Coventry City Centre. The Butts Park Arena and the Butts Centre are situated on the main road through Spon End. The Butts Park Arena, which was opened in 2004, is the home of Coventry Rugby Football club. The Butts Centre is the home of City College Coventry (formally called Coventry Technical College, often referred to as "The Butts").

The railway line linking Coventry and Nuneaton passes through Spon End on a viaduct. The area was historically connected to the city centre by Spon Street, though this ceased when the Coventry Inner Ring Road was built, cutting Spon Street in half. Adjacent areas besides the city centre include Earlsdon and Chapelfields.
