Albury is a village and civil parish in the East Hertfordshire District of Hertfordshire, England, about five miles west of Bishop's Stortford. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 537.

Albury lies between Little Hadham to the south and Furneux Pelham to the north and includes the hamlets Albury End, Clapgate, Patmore Heath and Upwick Green. The 1894-1895 edition of The Comprehensive Gazetteer of England and Wales listed the hamlets: Albury End, Church End, Clapgate, Gravesend, Patmore Heath, and Upwich. An earlier gazetteer, the Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales dated 1870-1872 stated that the north-lying Patient End is an Albury hamlet. Gravesend and Patmore Heath are 400 metres apart.

To the northwest of the village stood Albury Hall, a three-storey manor house believed to have been re-built by MP John Calvert (1726-1804), around 1780 after an earlier house was demolished. Calvert's son (died 1844), also named John and also an MP, inherited it in 1808, and successive owners modified the house, the army requisitioned it during World War II, and it was demolished around 1950.
