Buntingford is a market town and civil parish in the district of East Hertfordshire and county of Hertfordshire in England. It lies on the River Rib and on the Roman road Ermine Street. As a result of its location, it grew mainly as a staging post with many coaching inns. The town also has an annual firework display at The Bury, presented by Buntingford Town Football Club. It is Hertfordshire's smallest town. The Prime Meridian passes to the east of Buntingford. The town has many Georgian and medieval buildings, such as Buntingford almshouses, Buntingford Manor House and the Red House.

Due to its desirability as a commuter town in recent years, the town has grown considerably in the past few decades.
