Hardwick is both a village and a civil parish within the Aylesbury Vale district in Buckinghamshire, England. It is in the Aylesbury Vale, about four miles north of Aylesbury.

Hardwick is a common place name in England, of Anglo Saxon origin meaning 'livestock farm'. In the Domesday Book of 1086 the village was known as Harduich.

The parish church is dedicated to St Mary the Virgin, and the churchyard contains a grave for the soldiers who died during the English Civil War at the Battle of Aylesbury in 1642.[2]
