Welford-on-Avon is a village of around 1,800 inhabitants situated some west-south-west of the town of Stratford-upon-Avon in the county of Warwickshire, England.

Until 1931, Welford-on-Avon was in Gloucestershire (as part of the Rural District of Marston Sicca), when it was transferred to Stratford-on-Avon Rural District. Since 1974 it has been part of the District of Stratford-on-Avon.

The village sits within a bend of the River Avon, on the south bank. Its maypole is one of the tallest in England (at 65 feet/20 metres). It used to be wooden but was replaced by an aluminium pole after a lightning strike. There are three pubs and many Tudor half-timbered and thatched cottages, mostly close to the village church, which is the older part of Welford.
