Alveston is a village in Warwickshire, England, about 3 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon.

Hemingford House, the youth hostel for Stratford-upon-Avon is located there. The village was represented by Alveston F.C. between 1924 and 2017 when they folded. For most of its history the club played in the Stratford & District League and the Midland Football Combination.

Alveston was the home of the playwright J B Priestley (and his wife Jacquetta Hawkes) in his later years, who lived at Kissing Tree House in the village. The house was called Avonmore in the 1901 census and his secretary lived in Avonmore Cottage which is still there in Kissing Tree Lane.
