Stubbington is a small Hampshire village which is located between Southampton and Portsmouth on the south coast of England. It is within the Borough of Fareham. The nearest village is Titchfield. Also near Stubbington is the area of Fareham called Hill Head and the town of Lee-on-the-Solent.

Both Stubbington and neighbouring Crofton were mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as small districts belonging to the estates of Titchfield Abbey.

During the 19th century, Stubbington engulfed Crofton and the small fishing village of Hill Head. The Crofton name still remains in the name of many local facilities, such as the Crofton School and Crofton Old Church.

At the start of the 20th century, the village still consisted of just a few dozen cottages and farms. By 1939, the population had risen to around 2,500. In the 21st century the population of Stubbington has risen to over 15,000. No present-day local industries are mentioned for Stubbington.
