The City of London by-election, 1938 was a by-election held on 6 April 1938 for the British House of Commons constituency of City of London, which covered the "Square Mile" which was the United Kingdom's traditional financial district.

The by-election was caused by the death of one of the City's two Conservative Party Members of Parliament (MPs) Sir Thomas Vansittart Bowater, who had held the seat since a by-election in 1924, having contested the seat in an earlier by-election in 1922.

The Conservative candidate, Sir George Thomas Broadbridge, who had been Lord Mayor of London in 1936, was returned unopposed.[citation needed]
