Waltham Abbey is a market town of about 20,400 people in Epping Forest District in the southwest of the county of Essex, NNE of London on the Greenwich Meridian, between the River Lea in the west and Epping Forest in the east.

Waltham Abbey takes its name from the Abbey Church of Waltham Holy Cross, a scheduled ancient monument that was prominent in the town's early history. The town is within the large civil parish of Waltham Abbey which was known as Waltham Holy Cross until 1974. The parish has a town council and is twinned with the German town of Hörstel.
