Beaconsfield Urban District was from 1894 to 1974 a local government district in the administrative county of Buckinghamshire, England. The urban district took over the responsibilities of the disbanded Beaconsfield Local Board District. The district contained the whole of the town and civil parish of Beaconsfield.

In 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972 Beaconsfield UD merged with parts of Eton Rural District to form Beaconsfield District which in April 1980 was renamed South Bucks District.
