Leslie Aubrey Burton (6 October 1883 – 10 June 1946) was a British athlete. He competed at the 1908 Summer Olympics in London.

He died in Scarborough, North Yorkshire.

In the men's 400 metres hurdles, Burton won his first-round heat with a time of 1:00.4 to advance to the second round. There, he won again by establishing such a lead over the hurdles that he could not be caught in the straight. In the final, Burton finished last of the four runners, with a time of 58.0 seconds.
