Charles Best (1570–1627) was an English poet.
Best was a contributor to Francis Davison's Poetical Rapsodie. The second edition (1608) of that anthology contains two pieces by him, "A Sonnet of the Sun" (18 lines) and "A Sonnet of the Moon". To the third edition (1611) he contributed "An Epitaph on Henry Fourth, the last French King," "An Epitaph on Queen Elizabeth," "Union's Jewell," " 'A Panegyrick to my Sovereign Lord the King," and a few other pieces.
