Radbourne is a small village and civil parish in the English county of Derbyshire, a few miles west of Derby. As the population of the civil parish taken at the 2011 census was less than 100 details are included in the civil parish of Etwall.

Of interest are St Andrew's Church and Radbourne Hall. It has been said that Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed one night at the hall in 1745 on his march south when his army halted at Swarkestone Bridge just south of Derby.[citation needed]

The medieval knight Sir John Chandos, a close friend of Edward, the Black Prince, hailed from Radbourne in the 14th century.

Erasmus Darwin, grandfather of Charles, lived at Radbourne Hall for a short while after his marriage to Elizabeth Pole in 1781.
