Warrington is a census-designated place (CDP) in Escambia County, Florida, United States, and was once the westernmost incorporated town in Florida. Warrington is located between downtown Pensacola and the state line with Alabama; it is 6 miles (10 km) away from both.
Formerly designated as a town, a change in state incorporation standards in 1975 caused Warrington to lose town status. A referendum was held that year to regain the status, which failed. Since then attempts at regaining town status have not presented themselves. Despite falling outside of city limits and having a post office explicitly named "Warrington", mail going to the addresses in the Warrington ZIP code (32507) fall under the jurisdiction of Pensacola.
Naval Air Station Pensacola is located in Warrington (albeit with their own ZIP code, 32508, which corresponds to the mailing city "Naval Air Station Pensacola, FL").
Warrington is located at (30.385698, -87.289594).
