The River Sowe is a River in Warwickshiremarker and West Midlands, Englandmarker. It is a tributary of the River Avon, and flows into it just south of Stoneleighmarker.

The Sowe's route takes it through the eastern suburbs of Coventrymarker, in particular the districts of Longfordmarker, Wood Endmarker, Walsgravemarker, Binleymarker, Willenhallmarker and near the village of Bagintonmarker. Near Baginton the river has a large steep bank on its Southern side and the remains of the Roman Lunt Fort have been found at the top of this bank.

There is an established local park called the Sowe Valley Footpath that runs alongside the river for 8½ miles from Hawkesbury Junction Conservation Area to Stonebridge Meadows Local Nature. It also runs through Wyken Slough Local Nature Reserve, Wyken Croft Nature Park and Stoke Floods Local Nature Reserve.
