Busbridge is a village and civil parish in the Waverley District or Borough of Surrey that adjoins the town of Godalming. It was until the Tudor period often recorded as Bushbridge and was a manor and hamlet of Godalming until gaining an ecclesiastical parish in 1865 complemented by a secular, civil parish in 1933. Before 1933 it was part of the Godalming Rural Parish. Between 1933 and 1974 it was located in Hambledon Rural District.

Gertrude Jekyll, horticulturist and garden designer, lived at Munstead Wood in the Munstead Heath locality of the parish.
