Bisley is a village and civil parish in the borough of Surrey Heath in Surrey, England. It is located around three and a half miles west of Woking and just south of West End. According to the 2011 Census, the population of the parish was 3,965.

Prior to the formation of Surrey Heath Borough in 1974, Bisley was part of Chertsey Rural District (1894-1933) and Bagshot Rural District (1933-1974).

Much of the west of the parish is covered by higher acidic heath, which is owned and used or leased by the Ministry of Defence and is noted for its rifle shooting ranges. The National Shooting Centre, the headquarters of the National Rifle Association of the United Kingdom, is nearby. Other landmarks include Coldingley men's prison and the factory of Bisley Office Furniture, one of the largest office furniture manufacturers in Europe.
