Horsell is an ancient village in the borough of Woking in Surrey, England, located less than a mile northwest of Woking town centre. In November 2012, its population was 9,384.

Horsell has a close association with H. G. Wells' classic science fiction novel The War of the Worlds, the sand pits of Horsell Common being used as the site of the first Martian landing. Horsell Common has since been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Another landmark is the McLaren Technology Centre, built on the northern edge of the common in the early 2000s for the McLaren Group.
