Kimpton is a village in Hertfordshire, England, six miles south of Hitchin and four miles from Harpenden and Luton.

The village lies along the valley of a dried-up river bed and is about one mile long. Some of the houses on the High Street date back to the 16th century, but most are 19th and early 20th century. Behind the High Street are two large housing estates built in the 1970s.
