West Tisbury is a civil parish in southwest Wiltshire, England. The parish takes in the southwestern quarter of the village of Tisbury and extends about 3.8 miles (6.1 km) westward; Tisbury is about 13 miles (21 km) west of Salisbury.

The settlements in the parish are the following hamlets:

The River Sem, a tributary of the Nadder, forms almost all of the southern boundary of the parish. The West of England Main Line railway, opened in 1859, follows the same route.

The civil parish elects a parish council. It is in the area of Wiltshire Council unitary authority, which is responsible for all significant local government functions.

Until 1835 the land now in West Tisbury parish was part of Tisbury parish. [2] In 1986 small areas were transferred from West Tisbury to East Knoyle and Tisbury, the latter comprising housing built in the 1970s. [3]

Pythouse, a Grade II* listed country house, was built near Newtown in about 1725. Nearby Hatch House, from the 17th century and altered in 1908 by Detmar Blow, is also Grade II* listed. [4]

A school was built at Newtown in 1846 and closed in 1931. [5]
