The CV postcode area, also known as the Coventry postcode area, is a group of 24 postcode districts in central England, within eleven post towns. These cover the eastern part of the West Midlands county (including Coventry), most of Warwickshire (including Atherstone, Bedworth, Kenilworth, Leamington Spa, Nuneaton, Rugby, Shipston-on-Stour, Southam, Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick), a part of west Leicestershire and a very small part of Northamptonshire.
The postcode areas CV1 to CV6 incorporate the city of Coventry and its contiguous suburbs, with CV7 covering several rural and suburban villages to the immediate west and north of the city (where Coventry remains the post town), ie, the eastern portion of Solihull Borough and the southernmost areas of the Nuneaton & Bedworth District.
CV8 to CV47 covers all other post towns in the postcode area, to the north, south and east of Coventry (full coverage listed below).
The CV area borders seven other postcode areas : B (Birmingham), LE (Leicester), DE (Derby), NN (Northampton), WR (Worcester), GL (Gloucester) and OX (Oxford).
