Pyrford is a village in the borough of Woking in Surrey, England. It is located on the River Wey, around 2 miles (3.2 km) east of the town of Woking and just south of West Byfleet; the M25 motorway is also nearby.

The village sits on raised mixed heath soil, and has historical links with the abbey at Westminster, in whose possession it remained between the Norman Conquest in 1066 and the Dissolution of the Monasteries nearly five hundred years later.
