Kingswinford was a parliamentary constituency centred on the town of Kingswinford in Staffordshire. It returned one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom.

The constituency was created for the 1885 general election, and abolished for the 1950 general election, when the new Brierley Hill constituency took over much of the area, Brierley Hill Urban District having already absorbed much of Kingswinford Rural District more than a decade earlier.
