The CR postcode area, also known as the Croydon postcode area,[2] is a group of nine postcode districts in England, which are subdivisions of eight post towns. The majority of these postcode districts cover part of South London, although CR3 and CR6 cover both places in South London and places in Surrey.

The main sorting office is in Croydon, and the area served includes parts of the London Borough of Croydon and the London Borough of Merton. Part of the Tandridge district of Surrey is covered by parts of the CR3 and CR6 postcode districts.

For historical reasons the code CR9 differs from all others – CR9 is allocated to specific large users rather than a geographical area.
