Bagshot is a village in the south of England. It is situated in the northwest corner of Surrey within the county's Surrey Heath council district, close to the border with Berkshire, and is also in the diocese of Guildford. In the past Bagshot served as an important staging post between London, Southampton and the West Country. Evidence of this can been seen in some of the original coaching inns that are still there today.

The village is situated 43 km / 27 miles southwest of London, adjacent to junction 3 of the M3 motorway and on the A30 road, midway between Camberley and Sunningdale. Much of the surrounding land is owned by the Ministry of Defence and is part of Windsor Great Park, the area is in the Green Belt that surrounds London. It is served by Bagshot railway station.
