Albury is a village and civil parish in the Guildford District or Borough of Surrey, about 4 miles (6.4 km) south-east of Guildford town centre. Farley Green, Little London and the adjacent hamlet of Brook (Albury) form part of the secular parish. (There is another hamlet named Brook (Witley) in the parish of Witley in the Waverley District of Surrey.) The population of the parish, according to the census of 2011, was 1,191.

Albury "new village" is at the point where the Sherborne flowing from near Newlands Corner via the Silent Pool joins the Tillingbourne that runs through the centre of the village. Until the 20th century the stream fed the flour mill at the Chilworth end of the village.

The Duke of Northumberland owns the estate – the Mansion was once home to the Duke and Duchess. The gardens are designated Grade I listed and were designed by author and gardener John Evelyn who was noted for own his mansion 6 miles (9.7 km) east in Wotton, Surrey.
