Easton Grey is a small village in Wiltshire, England. It is on the B4040 road between Malmesbury and Sherston.

The village has a 16th-century bridge over the River Avon.[2] Overlooking the bridge is a manor house dating from the 13th century that was a favourite resort of H. H. Asquith during his premiership, and subsequently developed an association with the then Prince of Wales. The Church of England parish church was rebuilt in 1836.[2]

Within the parish is the 2 Michelin starred Whatley Manor hotel and restaurant.[3]
