Quarrendon is a large housing estate on the north west side of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire, England. The estate is named after the nearby ancient village of Quarrendon.

The estate was started in the post war years and added to in four main stages right through to the 1980s. It is now one of the largest housing estates in the modern town of Aylesbury with a population in the 2001 census of 5,897 people.

As well as four main shopping precincts, the estate features Aylesbury Vale Academy and the Abbey Centre, which is where the Pupil Referral Unit for Aylesbury is based. In addition the estate has two community primary schools, Haydon Abbey School, which takes approximately 380 pupils, and Thomas Hickman School, which takes approximately 440.
