Stradishall is a village and civil parish in the Borough of St Edmundsbury in the English county of Suffolk.

The civil parish includes a number of hamlets including Farley Green.

The Royal Air Force operated an airfield near Stradishall, RAF Stradishall, which was operational between 1938 and 1970. The former airfield is now the site of two category C prisons: HMP Highpoint North and HMP Highpoint South. Part of the former airfield remains a MOD training site which is closed to the public. There is a memorial to RAF Stradishall outside Stirling House which was once part of the officers quarters and now is a training unit for the Prison service. The village has an Anglican church dedicated to St Margaret.
