Albury is a village and civil parish in the borough of Guildford in Surrey, England, about four miles (6 km) south-east of Guildford town centre. The village is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Site of Special Scientific Interest.

The village of Albury is in fact divided into a village and two hamlets, the village being Albury and the hamlets Farley Green and Little London, each separated by woods and heathland. The river Tillingbourne runs through the centre of the village and in the recent past fed the flour mill at the Chilworth edge of the village, which has now given way to a small estate of houses.The small village offers one post office and general shop and a pub, the Drummond Arms. Another pub the William IV in close by Little London dates back to the 16th century. Fishing is available in the stocked Albury Estate ponds.

Albury is on the south side of the North Downs near to the Silent Pool.

The parish of Albury has four churches:
* The parish church of St Peter and St Paul
* The Barn church, St Michael's in Farley Green
* The Saxon Church in Albury Park
* The Catholic Apostolic Church at Sherbourne.

Albury village is next to Albury Estate which is an estate of convert|150|acre|km2; within it is the Saxon church, the mansion (now a retirement home), a few houses and what is left of the old village of Albury. The estate is owned by the Duke of Northumberland. Albury Mansion was once home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland. The gardens were designed by Evelyn.

The village appears in the "Domesday Book" as Eldeberie. It was held by Roger d'Abernon from Richard de Tonebrige. Its "Domesday" Assets were: 2½ hides, 1 church, 1 mill worth 5s, 8½ ploughs, convert|1|acre|m2|sing=on of meadow, woodland worth 30 hogs. It rendered (in total): £9.

Albury landfill

Albury has one of the two active landfill sites in Surrey; it only takes household waste. There is a landfill liaison committee which has been organised to work with SITA in an attempt to keep the villagers aware of all issues. This landfill generates revenue for Albury Estate which is owned by the Duke of Northumberland. Residents of the village remain surprised that permission was granted for a Landfill in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
