Admington is a village and civil parish in the Stratford-on-Avon district of the English county of Warwickshire. The name Admington means "estate associated with a man called Æthelhelm" [1] and the village is referred to in the Domesday Book as Edelmintone.[2] Until 31 March 1931 the parish was a part of Gloucestershire. The village lies 1 34 miles (2.8 km) north-west of Ilmington and 5 12 miles (8.9 km) north-east of Chipping Campden.[3] The parish has an area of 997 acres (403 ha).[4]

Admington shares a village hall with the neighbouring village of Quinton which is situated in Quinton. In the 2001 census the parish had a population of 100. The 2011 Census gives population details combined with those of Quinton.

Admington is the location of Admington Hall, an early 17th-century country house with an 18th-century façade.[5]
