Wiverton Hall is an English country house near Tithby, Nottinghamshire. By 1510 the former village of Wyverton had become impoverished and reduced to just four houses and a cottage. In that year it was completely depopulated by "emparkment", when George Chaworth enlarged his park by 254 acres (103 hectares). All but the Grade II* listed gatehouse of the mansion was destroyed in the English Civil War.

Wiverton Hall is considered to have been established by Sir Thomas Chaworth (d. 1458/9) in 1450. In 1627 his descendant, Sir George Chaworth, 1st Viscount Chaworth (d. 1639) was created Viscount Chaworth of Armagh, and his son John Chaworth, 2nd Viscount Chaworth (d. 1644) the second Viscount, was living at Wiverton.

The population of Wiverton Hall parish is included in the civil parish of Colston Bassett.
