Hucclecote is a village in Gloucestershire, England comprising a ward in the City of Gloucester, and an adjacent civil parish in the Borough of Tewkesbury. It is located on the periphery of Gloucester, between Barnwood and Brockworth along Ermin Street, an old Roman road connecting Gloucester with Cirencester and the Cotswolds. The entire community had a population of 10,158 in the UK census of 2011.

Hucclecote has been settled since ancient times, and a Roman villa dating from the second or third century AD has been found at Hucclecote.

Later, Hucclecote was a hamlet in the ancient parish of Churchdown, and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086.
