Hamworthy is a parish and inner suburb of Poole in Dorset, England. Hamworthy is bounded by Upton to the North and situated beside the Wareham Channel of Poole Harbour and between two bays, Holes Bay to the east and Lychett Bay to the west, on a peninsula of approximately three square kilometres. Poole town bridge, the southern terminus of the A350 road, connects the suburb with the town centre. Hamworthy is the location of the Poole passenger teminal, the dock of cross-channel ferries.

Hamworthy was the location of a Roman settlement named Moriconium, which made use of the natural harbour, and was connected by road to Badbury Rings.

More recently Hamworthy has changed considerably in character. The closure of the power station in the early 1990s and of other industrial sites close to the town bridge has provided an area for regeneration. This includes plans for a second bridge crossing, and major house building.

Hamworthy has its own railway station, with an hourly South West trains service on the London Waterloo to Weymouth line, as well as a stopping service which runs from Wareham to Brockenhurst.
