Bagshot is a town 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. Bagshot is part of the civil parish of Windlesham. Between 1894 and 1909 the civil parish was part of Chertsey Rural District. In 1909 Windlesham became an urban district, but in 1933, when Chertsey Rural District was abolished, Windlesham lost its urban district status and became part of the newly organized Bagshot Rural District. From 1837 until 1934 it was part of the Chertsey Registration District.
