Upper Sundon is a village located in the Central Bedfordshire district of Bedfordshire, England.

The village is the largest settlement in the wider Sundon civil parish, though Lower Sundon is presumed to be older, as the parish church (first built in the 13th Century) is located there.

Today, Upper Sundon houses most of the amenities located in the parish, including Sundon Lower School, an Indian restaurant and a pub. Historically the village contained three pubs but one has since closed leaving The White hart and the Red Lion as the only public houses in Upper Sundon. The village is close to the large town of Luton, and is bordered on the west by the M1 motorway.
