Naburn is a small village and civil parish in the unitary authority of the City of York in North Yorkshire, England. It lies on the eastern side of the River Ouse about 4 miles (6.4 km) south of York. According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 470.

A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Deighton from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"NABURN, a village in Escrick parish, and a township-chapelry partly also in Acaster-Malbis parish, [East Riding] Yorkshire. The village stands on the river Ouse, at the boundary of [the West Riding of] Yorkshire, 4 miles N E by E of Copmanthorpe [railway] station, and 4 S of York; and has a ferry on the Ouse, and a post-office under York. The chapelry comprises 2,466 acres. Real property: £4,648; of which £30 are in fisheries. Population: 471; Houses: 92; Population of the Escrick portion: 382; Houses: 76."

From 1894 until 1935, Naburn was located in Escrick Rural District. In 1935 the Escrick Rural District was abolished and its place was taken by Derwent Rural District which administered the local area until the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974. From 1974 until 1996, Naburn was in the Selby District of North Yorkshire. In 1996 the City of York, a unitary authority, expanded its borders to include Naburn.

Historically, Naburn was partly in Acaster Malbis parish and partly in the ecclesiastical parish of York St. George. Both were in the wapentake of Ouse and Derwent.
