Tisbury is a large village approximately west of Salisbury in the English county of Wiltshire, is one of the oldest human inhabited sites in Europe, and has connections with what is believed to be one of the World's oldest artworks.

With a population at the 2001 census of 2,056[1] it is an important local centre for communities around the upper River Nadder and Vale of Wardour. It is the largest settlement within the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (larger nearby settlements such as Salisbury and Shaftesbury are just outside it).
