Frestonia is the sixth album by British group Aztec Camera, released in November 1995 on the Reprise Records label. It is the last album to be released under the name of Aztec Camera: Roddy Frame's subsequent releases would be under his own name. The title of the album refers to the community of Frestonia in the Notting Hill district of London.

Frestonia was something of a low-key release, both musically and commercially, and is the only Aztec Camera album which failed to chart in the United Kingdom. Only one track, "Sun", was released as a single, and this too failed to chart.
