Arborfield is a village in the English county of Berkshire. The village is situated on the A327 road some 3 miles south-east of the large town of Reading, 3 miles west of the smaller town of Wokingham, and half a mile to the west of the sister village of Arborfield Cross.

Arborfield is probably best known for the adjoining army base of Arborfield Garrison, the headquarters and training base of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers corps of the British Army, although the Garrison actually lies about a mile the other side of Arborfield Cross.

Arborfield forms part of the civil parish of Arborfield and Newland, which is part of the district administered by the unitary authority of Wokingham District.
