Shalden is a village and civil parish in the East Hampshire district of Hampshire, England. It is 2.1 miles (3.4 km) northwest of Alton, just off the A339 road.

The nearest railway station is Alton, 2.1 miles (3.4 km) southeast of the village.

The original parish church was Saxon, but the present one dates from the nineteenth century, built of flint with Bath stone dressing in the Early English style. It possesses a fifteenth century font of considerable merit.

Shalden acquired some notoriety in 1867 due to its association with the murder by Frederick Baker, of 'Sweet' Fanny Adams in a hop field between the village and Alton.
