Riseley is a village in the English county of Berkshire, adjacent to the border with Hampshire. It is located around 6 miles (9.7 km) south of Reading and 8 miles (13 km) north-east of Basingstoke, and is bypassed to the west by the A33 road.
Before 1844, Riseley was part of a detached portion, or exclave, of the county of Wiltshire, some 30 miles to the west. The Counties (Detached Parts) Act of that year resulted in its transfer to Berkshire.
