Hatton is a town in the Nuwara Eliya District of Central Province, Sri Lanka governed by the Hatton-Dickoya Urban Council. It is approximately 83 kilometres southeast of Colombo and 44 km south of Kandy and is situated at an elevation of 1,271 m above sea level. Hatton was founded during the British colonial times in order to serve the coffee and latter tea estates. The name of the town refers to the village in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. A number of the surrounding tea estates are also named after Scottish villages. Whilst Hatton serves as a gateway to Adam's Peak and Sinharaja Forest Reserve, it is better known for its Ceylon tea plantations and industry. The Hatton National Bank and Brown & Co. Ltd. were both founded in Hatton. In 2008 part of the Hatton town, including religious places, was gazetted as a Religious Zone by the Government of Sri Lanka.
