List of UK top-ten albums in 1965

The UK Albums Chart is one of many music charts compiled by the Official Charts Company that calculates the best-selling albums of the week in the United Kingdom.[1][2][3] Before 2004, the chart was only based on the sales of physical albums. This list shows albums that peaked in the Top 10 of the UK Albums Chart during 1965, as well as albums which peaked in 1964 but were in the top 10 in 1965. The entry date is when the album appeared in the top ten for the first time (week ending, as published by the Official Charts Company, which is six days after the chart is announced).

The first new number-one album of the year was by The Rolling Stones No. 2 by The Rolling Stones. Overall, six different albums peaked at number one in 1965, with The Beatles (2) having the most albums hit that position.
