Hannington is a village and civil parish in Wiltshire, England, two miles northwest of Highworth, and now part of the Borough of Swindon.

The parish includes the hamlets of Hannington Wick (north of Hannington village) and Swanborough (south, on the border with Highworth parish).

The River Thames forms both the northern boundary of the parish and the county boundary with Gloucestershire. The minor road north from Hannington Wick is carried over the river by Hannington Bridge.

Hannington Hall is a Grade II* listed country house built in 1653.[2]
