Send is a village and civil parish in the Guildford borough of the English county of Surrey. Send acquired its name during the Great English Vowel Shift from the word sand, which was extracted at various periods until the 1990s for construction and other purposes at pits in the outskirts of the parish. The north of Send is at the southern-eastern edge of the Bagshot Formation.

Send is buffered by Metropolitan Green Belt from other villages and towns except for the Grove Heath neighbourhood of Ripley. A rural band of the village adjoins the River Wey including Cartbridge and Send Marsh — this land has been drained and the river tamed by sluices, the Broadmead Cut and the Wey Navigation, adjoining. The vast majority of the built-up areas are not within an area of flood risk. Between the Wey and its canal in the far north of the parish are the Papercourt and Broad Mead SSSIs.
