Gaydon is a parish and village in Warwickshire, England, close to Royal Leamington Spa. In the 2001 census, the parish had a population of 376, increasing to 446 at the 2011 Census.  The village is at the junction of the B4100 (former A41) and B4451 roads, a mile from Junction 12 of the M40 motorway, and is two miles north-east of Kineton.  This site is owned and managed by the residents of Gaydon.

Gaydon is notable for RAF Gaydon, a V bomber base in the 20th century. It is now home to Jaguar Land Rover, and Aston Martin. The motoring heritage of the area is represented within the British Motor Museum.

Gaydon parish is crossed by only two roads of any importance — the Kineton to Southam road, which runs in a north-easterly direction, and the Warwick to Banbury road which crosses it at right angles.


Gaydon has one pub the Malt Shovel , which is next to the community run Village Store, which opened in 2010.​

The Gaydon Inn which is being redeveloped for housing stands close to the point of intersection of the two roads, and the main part of the village of Gaydon is disposed along a short loop south of the junction. The Gaydon Inn was famous in the 18th century for its association with violent highwaymen.

The Manor House on Kineton Road dates back to the 17th century.

Although Gaydon has become something of a commuter village because of its proximity to the M40, which was completed in January 1991, it is undergoing a revival which is looking back to its roots, agriculture and community spirit.


There are plans to revive the play area in Gaydon with the backing of the local Parish Council.
