Hullavington is a civil parish in Wiltshire, England, just to the north of the M4 motorway, 5 miles south-southwest of Malmesbury and 7 miles north of Chippenham.

The population at the beginning of the nineteenth century was 395 (1801 census), rising to 823 in 1901 and was 1,223 in 2011. Its neighbouring parishes include Grittleton and Norton (near Malmesbury).

A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Hullavington from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"HULLAVINGTON, a village and a parish in Malmsbury [registration] district, Wilts. The village stands 5 miles SW by S of Malmsbury, and 6 NW by N of Chippenham [railway] station; and has a post office under Chippenham. The parish includes the tything of Surrendral, and comprises 3,121 acres. Real property: £4,605. Population: 700. Houses: 152. The property is divided among a few. The manor belonged to the priory of St. Victor, near Rouen; passed to the Crown; was given, by Henry VI., to Eton College; and is now held by Sir John Neeld, Bart., as lessee. The parish is a meet for the Beaufort hounds. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Gloucester and Bristol. Value: £194. Patron: Eton College. The church is ancient; has some good early English work, and a tower; and, in 1866, was much out of repair. There are chapels for Independents, Baptists, and Primitive Methodists, a school partly supported by Sir John Neeld, and charities £5."
