Four ships and a shore establishment of the Royal Navy have borne the name HMS Boadicea after Boadicea, queen of the Iceni in Roman Britain, whilst another ship was planned but never completed:

HMS Boadicea was considered as a name for one of the Type 22 frigates, but the name HMS Coventry was selected instead.
