Giles Lytton Strachey (1. mart 1880 - 21. januar 1932) bio je engleski književnik i publicist, najpoznatiji po biografskim knjigama koje su velikim dijelom stvorile modernu percepciju viktorijanske ere i njenog morala. Poznat je kao i jedan od osnivača uticajnog književnog i intelektualnog kružoka Bloomsbury Group; njemu je pripadala slikarica Dora Carrington sa kojom je, usprkos svoje homoseksualnosti i njenog braka sa Ralphom Patridgeom, živio u otvorenoj vezi. Carrington je, nedugo nakon Stracheyeve smrti od raka želuca, izvršila samoubistvo.

Strachey se pojavljuje kao lik u biografskom filmu Carrington gdje ga tumači Jonathan Pryce.
