The civil parish of Haydon Wick is a northern suburb of the town of Swindon, Wiltshire, in England. It has a 21st century population in excess of 20,000.

Until 1928 Haydon Wick was a tything in the ancient and civil parish of Rodborne Cheney. In that year it was made a civil parish and the area of Rodborne Cheney was divided between it and Swindon. The former hamlet of Haydon and the suburb of Greenmeadow have been redirected to Rodborne Cheney.
