Hinksey Hill is a hill and residential area in Berkshire, two miles south of the centre of Oxford. It is in South Hinksey civil parish, about ½ mile south of the village itself.

At the foot of the hill is Hinksey Hill Interchange where the Abingdon By-Pass joins the Southern By-Pass Road. The road up the hill was the route of the A34 until the 1970s, when the Abingdon Bypass was completed. It is now an unclassified road.

Hinksey Hill has a good view of Oxford's skyline.
