Whitehill is a village and civil parish in the East Hampshire district of Hampshire, England. It is 0.7 miles (1.1 km) south of Bordon.

The nearest railway station is Liss, 4 miles (6.4 km) south of the village.

For more information on Whitehill-Bordon and the eco-town proposal, see Bordon.


Both Bordon and Whitehill straddle the very busy A325 road and the A3 road London to Portsmouth road passes through the parish (though not the town itself). The completion of the Hindhead Tunnel in July 2011, has improved road access to London. The tunnel is also likely to remove some through-traffic presently taking the A325 through Bordon to avoid frequent delays at traffic lights in Hindhead; including some Guildford and M25-bound traffic from the south diverting via Farnham.

The nearest railway station is 4 miles (6.4 km) southeast of the town, at Liss. The town used to have its own railway station on the Longmoor Military Railway but this closed in 1969. The Association of Train Operating Companies has proposed that a new railway line serve the town.

There was a bus link to Liphook railway station which was discontinued in May 2009. Stagecoach bus 18 passes through the town on the way from Haslemere to Farnham and Aldershot. Stagecoach bus 13 passes through as it travels between Liphook and Alton.
