St Paul's Walden is a village about 5 miles (8 km) south of Hitchin in Hertfordshire, England. The civil parish of St Paul's Walden also includes the village of Whitwell and the hamlet of Bendish. At the 2011 Census the population of the civil parish was 1,293.
After the Reformation the manor belonged to St Paul's Cathedral; the name St Paul's Walden serves to distinguish the parish from King's Walden, although the Dean and Chapter sold their property in the 17th century.
St Paul's Walden has two 18th-century mansions,
- Stagenhoe (once owned by the Earls of Caithness)
- St Paul's Walden Bury (owned by the Bowes-Lyon family),
The gardens of St Paul's Walden Bury are listed as grade I on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England. They are occasionally opened to the public under the National Garden Scheme, a charity of which the Queen Mother was patron.
