Lambourn is a large village and civil parish in the northwestern part of the ceremonial county of Berkshire in England. The civil parish is most noted for its shops, facilities and stables for British fenced course (known as National Hunt) racehorse training. The village has many amenities, a football team and is the home to several leading jockeys and trainers. The village has the Seven Barrows and a few sarsen stones dating from c. 4000 BC and was in its later history briefly one of the major sites of uprisings against mechanised agriculture by Luddites.

The nearest large towns are Swindon and Newbury, each more than away by road. The M4 motorway passes through the far south of the civil parish.
