Iron Acton is a village, civil parish and former manor in South Gloucestershire, England. The village is about 2 miles west of Yate and about 9 miles northeast of the centre of Bristol. The B4058 road used to pass through the village but now by-passes it just to the north.

The "iron" part of the toponym originates from the iron that used to be mined near the village. "Acton" is derived from the Old English for "farm with oak trees". Still today there is an oak wood in the village beside the River Frome.
