Gamston is a civil parish and a suburb of West Bridgford, in the Rushcliffe district of Nottinghamshire, England. It is situated approximately south-east of Nottingham and is part of the West Bridgford postcode of NG2.

The parish of Gamston comes under Holme Pierrepont and Gamston Parish Council. Gamston is also one of the wards of Rushcliffe Borough Council; the ward is larger than the parish and also contains the parish of Holme Pierrepont and the village of Edwalton. It is one of the nine wards in West Bridgford. The ward elects two councillors (both Conservative); elections are every four years.

Most of the homes in Gamston were built since the 1980s as part of the expansion of West Bridgford. The homes range from 2 bed bungalows and one bed terraces to 5 bedroomed family homes.

The border between Gamston and Edwalton exists at the junction of Beckside, Melton Gardens and Alford Road. The West Bridgford border however is somewhat harder to ascertain, although the Grantham Canal provides a partial boundary in the North-West. The more recent housing estate off of Stavely Way, is however in West Bridgford.

Pubs in the area include 'The Goose' and 'The Bridge'.

The modern centre of Gamston is based around Morrisons superstore, once Safeway; which now has a Chinese takeaway, vet surgery and pet store nearby, next to the community hall.

Local secondary schools and colleges include Rushcliffe School, West Bridgford Comprehensive and Central College Nottingham, although none of these are located in Gamston. Local primary schools include Pierrepont Gamston School, Edwalton Primary School in Edwalton and Abbey Road Primary School in West Bridgford.

In 2009, Gamston was proposed as the site for a 45,000 seat football stadium, to host games in the 2018 World Cup and Nottingham Forest football club, who have played at the City Ground in West Bridgford since 1898. Previous suggested sites included nearby Holme Pierrepont.
