The 2010 Tour of Britain was a UCI 2.1 category race of eight stages that was held from 11 to 18 September 2010. The race was the seventh edition of the latest version of the Tour of Britain and the 71st British tour in total. It formed part of the 2009–2010 UCI Europe Tour. The race began in Rochdale and ended with a circuit stage in London. The Tour was won by a HTC–Highroad rider for the second successive year, as Switzerland's Michael Albasini won the race by over a minute.
The final stage of the 2010 edition was a circuit race in Newham, London. It was originally intended that the final stage would be in the centre of London but, due to the visit of Pope Benedict XVI to London, the organisers were forced to find an alternative location.
