Warblington, historically part of the Hundred of Bosmere , is a suburb of Havant, a town in Hampshire, England. It is part of the parish of St Thomas à Becket, Warblington and St James, Emsworth. Pevsner (1967) describes the church of St Thomas as essentially late 12th century and praises the "undisturbed" setting. To the north of the church is the locality’s most distinctive landmark: the tall octagonal turret of the ruined castle. In October 1551, Mary of Guise the widow of James V of Scotland stayed a night in the castle as a guest of Sir Richard Cotton.
Unusually, Warblington contains a large secondary school but no primary.
