Honington is a small village in the county of Suffolk in England, located near the county's border with Norfolk border. The village lies on the River Blackbourn, approximately 8 miles from Bury St Edmunds and 6 miles from Thetford, Norfolk. Much of the surrounding farm land falls within the estate of the Duke of Grafton.

The village is probably best known for its RAF base, RAF Honington, and for being the birthplace of poet Robert Bloomfield.

Honington is bordered to the north-east by Sapiston, to the north-west by Fakenham Magna, to the north by Euston, to the east by Bardwell, to the south-west by Troston, and to the south by Ixworth Thorpe.

It is also near two Joint RAF/USAF Bases, RAF Lakenheath and RAF Mildenhall
