Ruddington is an English village (twinned with Grenay, France) south of Nottingham in the Borough of Rushcliffe. It had a population of 6,441 at the 2001 Census, increasing to 7,216 at the 2011 Census.

An independent community, residents have previously conducted high-profile campaigns in an attempt to retain the rural identity as a village and prevent it being subsumed into the adjoining suburban districts of Clifton and West Bridgford. It maintains this through a variety of local amenities such as several shops, schools, public houses, community centre, village hall and churches within the village centre.
