Sawston is a large village in Cambridgeshire in England, situated on the River Cam seven miles (11 km) south of Cambridge. It has a population of 7,150 (Census 2001). It is officially listed as a village, despite fulfilling many of the criteria for town status such as a High Street with shops and banks.

The village has been twinned with the German town of Selsingen since Klaus Bruno Pape's visit to Sawston in 1984, as a result of a link being established between the two in Walther Piroth of Frankfurt University's PhD thesis.
