East Goscote was a hundred of Leicestershire, that arose from the division of the ancient Goscote hundred into two. It covered the eastern part of today's Charnwood district, along with the northern part of Harborough district, and extended south-east to meet Rutland.

The hundred was created by the subdivision of the Goscote hundred in 1346.[1] A parish in East Goscote was Prestwould (later named Prestwold).[2]
