Nursling is a village in Hampshire, situated about 6 kilometres northwest of the city of Southampton. Formerly called "Nhutscelle" (in an 8th-century life of Saint Boniface), then Nutshalling or Nutshullyng until the mid-19th century, it has now been absorbed into the suburbs of Southampton, although it is not officially part of the city (remaining part of the Test Valley District or borough).

The civil parish of Nursling lost part of its area to the newly formed parish of Rownhams in 1894. In 1932 the two civil parishes were merged into the new parish of Nursling and Rownhams.
