Allington is a hamlet in north Wiltshire, England. It is on the edge of the market town of Chippenham, about 2 miles (3.2 km) northwest of the town centre and about 0.3 miles (0.48 km) north of the A420 road.

Allington Bar is a farm and small hamlet on the A420.

Allington Manor Farmhouse is from the mid 18th century[1] and incorporates fragments of a 17th-century manor house; further fragments are within an 18th-century barn.[2] Bolehyde Manor, another 17th-century manor house and former home of Camilla Parker Bowles, is a short distance north of Allington village.

This Allington is not a former parish, but was a tithing of the parish of Chippenham.[3] Since 1894 it has been in the civil parish of Chippenham Without.[4]
