Brinkworth, in northern Wiltshire, is the longest village in Britain, at over 6 miles (although the main urban core extends for less than 1 mile). It is roughly equidistant between the towns of Malmesbury and Royal Wootton Bassett and lies less than 1 km north of the M4 motorway.

The Woodbridge Brook, a tributary of the Bristol Avon passes to the north of the village and another tributary of the Avon, the Thunder Brook, passes to the south, although some call it Brinkworth Brook.

The civil parish of Brinkworth includes the hamlet of Callow Hill to the east and the tything of Grittenham, a rural community lying to the south of the village of Brinkworth.
