West Tisted is a small village in the East Hampshire district of Hampshire, England. It is 6.7 miles (10.8 km) northwest of Petersfield, just off the A32 road.

The nearest railway station is the restored Ropley station on the Watercress Line, trains from which connect with the nearest national rail station 7.8 miles (12.6 km) to the northeast, at Alton. Petersfield station on the Portsmouth Direct Line is 6.7 miles (10.8 km) to the southeast of the village.

The village is home to a Saxon church, and an ancient yew tree. West Tisted was also the home of Sir Benjamin Tichborne, sheriff of Southampton.

In modern times the village has been dominated by a large working farm, R.S. Hill & Sons, for which many of the residents work. The company also owns West Tisted Manor. The company's surviving proprietor is Ashwin Hill, the remaining son.
