Englefield Green is a large village in northern Surrey, England. It is home to Royal Holloway, University of London, the south eastern corner of Windsor Great Park, borders the town of Egham and more tightly-clustered village of Virginia Water. Its nearest main commercial hubs are Staines-upon-Thames and Windsor. The village grew from a hamlet in Egham in the 19th century, when much of it was sold off from the Great Park in the Crown Estate, and is mostly residential. Domestic gardens occupy a high proportion of land relative to national and regional averages and the village is not bisected by trunk transport infrastructure however is connected to the M25 motorway by the Egham by-pass of the A30 road and is centred from Egham railway station.

It takes up two electoral wards of the United Kingdom that include the Magna Carta location of Runnymede (this remains a part of the ancient and reduced Egham ecclesiastical parish), various public greens and woodland at Cooper's Hill.
