Cuddesdon Palace[1] was the episcopal palace for the Bishop of Oxford, located near the village of Cuddesdon, Oxfordshire, England.

The palace was erected by John Bancroft, a 17th-century Bishop of Oxford. The original palace was replaced by a second palace.[2] The palace burnt down in the 1960s. Ripon College Cuddesdon is in the grounds of the palace, which is now a private residence.

The Bishop of Oxford now resides in North Oxford.
