Long Itchington is a large village and civil parish in Warwickshire, England, which at the 2011 census had a population of 2,013. The village is named after the River Itchen which flows to the south and west of the village, to locals it is often referred to informally as "Long Itch".
Long Itchington is mostly made up of 20th century developments, but includes several historic buildings, including a half-timbered Tudor house on the main road at which Queen Elizabeth I is said to have stayed in 1572 and 1575. The old Manor House in the square dates from the 15th century.
The village was once served by the former Weedon to Leamington Spa railway line. The village station, on the outskirts on the road towards Southam, known as Southam and Long Itchington railway station, closed to passengers in the late 1950s. Part of the old railway line has been converted into a cycleway as part of the National Cycle Network.
In October 2018 a war memorial was erected to commemorate the 54 men of the village who were killed in the First World War.
The village contains seven pubs, a small shop, a co-op, a church, a Congregational chapel, a primary school, a hairdressers, a park, and a community centre.
