Whitminster is a village and civil parish in Gloucestershire, on the A38 trunk road about six miles south of Gloucester. It was formerly known as Wheatenhurst, the name being changed officially in 1945. Wheatenhurst manor, with Whitminster House and the parish church of St Andrew, lies about a mile to the west of the modern village.

It has one pub, 'The Old Forge', a village shop, a chip shop, a Chinese restaurant and takeaway, an Indian takeaway and a recently refurbished hotel, The Whitminster Inn.

Whitminster is a fast-growing village due to its proximity to the M5 motorway, with Bristol, South Wales and the Midlands all within an hour's drive.
