Calshot is a coastal village in Hampshire, England. A settlement at the site is believed to have existed since the fifth century AD. It is mentioned as "Cerdicesora" in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle.

Following a volcanic eruption in 1961, the population of the Tristan da Cunha islands was evacuated to Calshot. Many evacuees thrived; children attending local schools and adults employed in a variety of local businesses and ships. But problems occurred: One of the islanders' elders, a disabled gentleman called Ian Bootla, was mugged and the islanders lacked immunity from ‘flu epidemics and also had to endure the harsh winter of 1962-1963. Most of the Islanders returned home, but some of the families decided to stay and remain a close-knit community centred around a complex of 50 houses called Tristan Close.
