The 2018 Lakeside World Professional Darts Championship was the 41st World Championship organised by the British Darts Organisation, and the 33rd staging at the Lakeside Country Club at Frimley Green.

Glen Durrant who was the defending men's champion, successfully retained his title, beating Mark McGeeney 7–6 in the final after the match went to a tie break. Durrant became the fifth player to defend a world title following his first win, after Eric Bristow, Raymond van Barneveld, Adrian Lewis and Gary Anderson. McGeeney became the second man, following Mike Gregory in 1992, to lose a world final having had darts at double to win.

Lisa Ashton who was the defending women's champion, also retained her title with a 3–1 win over Anastasia Dobromyslova.

Durrant recorded the tournament's first 100+ match average since 2014 in his quarter-final victory over Jim Williams.

All four men's quarter-finals went to a deciding set, the first time this had happened since the format was changed so that the quarters were played to best of nine sets. The previous year this happened was 1991, when the quarter-finals were best of seven sets.

Michael Unterbuchner became the first German player to reach the semi-finals of the World Championship, but was beaten 6–4 by Mark McGeeney.
