Claymont is located in northeastern Brandywine Hundred on the ridge line between the coastal floodplain of the Delaware River and the upland area of northwestern New Castle County.

Claymont is home to several historic places, including the Claymont Stone School (which may have been the state's first racially integrated public school), Archmere Academy (in the former home of industrialist John J. Raskob), the Darley House (former home of illustrator F. O. C. Darley), and the Robinson House (with a Block House believed to be the only structure remaining of the original Naaman's Creek settlement).
