The CV postcode area, also known as the Coventry postcode area,[2] is a group of postcode districts around Atherstone, Bedworth, Coventry, Kenilworth, Leamington Spa, Nuneaton, Rugby, Shipston-on-Stour, Southam, Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick in England.

Postal districts CV1 to CV6 covers the city of Coventry and its immediate suburban areas, while districts CV7 to CV47 covers all towns, villages and rural areas beyond the city itself. A number of suburban villages in the CV6 area lie within neighbouring Warwickshire, including Hawkesbury Village and Neals Green. Coventry remains the post town for the CV7 district, even though large villages such as Balsall Common and Meriden lie within the Solihull Metropolitan district and are several miles west of the city, very close to the Birmingham postcode area.

The CV postcode area is relatively extensive (especially north to south) and borders the postcode areas of Birmingham (B) to the west/northwest/southwest, Leicester (LE) to the northeast, Derby (DE) to the north, Northampton (NN) to the southeast, Gloucester (GL) and Worcester (WR) to the southwest, and Oxford (OX) to the south.
