Haslemere is a town in the Borough of Waverley in Surrey, England. It is located at the tripoint with Hampshire and West Sussex, approximately 12 miles (19 km) southwest of Guildford, and is the most southerly town in Surrey.

Haslemere lies just east of the A3 road, the major road between London and Portsmouth, while the south branch of the River Wey rises just to the south of the town, on Black Down in West Sussex. The town's railway station is served by South West Trains services between London Waterloo and Portsmouth, while the town itself has a commercial district with service and retail amenities. The population of Haslemere in the UK census of 2011 was 16,826.

Haslemere's growth has come mostly in the 20th century. It was a civil parish within Hambledon Rural District from 1894 until 1913, then became an urban district until the reorganization of local government in 1974 when it became part of Waverley Borough.
