Soberton is a village in the Meon Valley, Hampshire, England and is bordered by villages such as Newtown and Droxford. It is listed in the Domesday Book under its original name, 'Sudbertone'/'Sudbertune', and comes under Winchester City Council.

Key features of Soberton include the War Memorial at its centre, the early 16th century Church of St Peter & St Paul and The White Lion, the village's 17th century public house. The church is part of one of the largest parishes in the UK. The village was part of a well established smuggling route during the 18th century, and a vault beneath the church was used for the storage of contraband.

It is the Soberton of " Baron Anson of Soberton", an 18th and 19th century peerage. The children's writer Barbara Euphan Todd was brought up there.
