Titsey is a rural village and a civil parish on the North Downs almost wholly within the M25 London Orbital Motorway in the Tandridge District of Surrey, England.

The closest railway stations is located 1.5 miles (2.4 km) south-west in Oxted which is also the administrative centre of the district. Approximately half of the land in Titsey is owned by a charity running the Titsey Place estate, with the remainder is a mixture of common and privately owned woodland and smallholdings.

Titsey covers a long tract which reaches up the southern escarpment of the North Downs, specifically to the highest point of the range, Botley Hill, which is in the parish. Springs in Titsey, rising at the foot of the chalk scarp of the North Downs, are the source of the River Eden.

The northern part of the parish has an altitude of around 230 metres (750 ft) north of the ridge of the North Downs. The population is dispersed through a parish bordering Farleigh to the north and the London Borough of Bromley to the northeast. Biggin Hill is also to the northeast. The boundary with Kent is 1.5 miles (2.4 km) east of Titsey village.

Titsey was part of the Godstone Rural District from 1894 until 1974 and of the Tandridge District since 1974.
