Wardington is a village and civil parish in Oxfordshire, England, about 4 miles (6.4 km) northeast of Banbury. The village consists of two parts: Wardington (or Lower Wardington) and Upper Wardington. The village is on a stream that rises in Upper Wardington and flows north to join the River Cherwell.

The parish includes the hamlet of Williamscot, about 1 mile (1.6 km) southwest of Wardington. The parish is bounded to the west and north by the River Cherwell, to the south by a stream that joins the Cherwell, and to the northeast by field boundaries. Its northeastern and southern boundaries also form part of the county boundary with Northamptonshire. The 2011 UK Census recorded the parish's population as 602.

Wardington became a civil parish in 1866. Prior to that it had been a chapelry in the parish of Cropredy. (Source: A Vision of Britain through Time)
