Hatton (grid reference SP242670) is a village and civil parish about 4 miles (6.4 km) north of Warwick, in the Warwick District of Warwickshire in England. It has a population of 1,078. Notable features include a remarkable series of 21 locks on the Grand Union Canal, a shopping village (Hatton Country World) and a former psychiatric hospital (Central Hospital, Hatton) that has been turned into a large housing estate while still preserving the original Victorian buildings. The public house, Hatton Arms, has been noted for its regular large assemblies of motorcycles. Other public houses in the area include the Falcon Inn, although less well known as it is situated further away from the village centre. Shrewley and Beausale are hamlets within the parish.
Hatton is close to the M40 motorway and is also served by the small, unmanned Hatton railway station, which lies on the main Birmingham Snow Hill to London Marylebone line and a small branch line to Stratford-upon-Avon. Services from this station are run by London Midland and Chiltern Railways and there are direct services to Stratford-upon-Avon and intermediate stations, Warwick, Leamington Spa and stations to London Marylebone, and stations to Birmingham. The towpath Grand Union Canal is a long distance walk as well as a route for narrowboaters and canoeists.
