Chisledon is a village and civil parish in the Borough of Swindon, Wiltshire, England. It takes its name from the Old English "cisel dene", or gravel valley, being noted in the Domesday Book as "Chiseldene".

The village lies on the edge of the Marlborough Downs, a mile south of junction 15 of the M4 motorway, on the A346 road between the towns of Swindon and Marlborough. The large village of Wroughton is 2.5 miles (4 km) to the east. The parish includes the hamlets of Badbury, Badbury Wick, Draycot Foliat, Hodson, and Ridgeway View; in the north it includes the hamlet of Coate, on the edge of the southeast suburbs of Swindon. The ancient manor of Burderop is also within the parish. The parish had a population of 2,667 in the UK census of 2011.

Draycot Foliat was a separate civil parish (and an ancient parish) until it was absorbed into Chisledon in 1894.
