At least three ships of the Royal Navy have borne the name HMS Wellington:
- The French brig Oreste was renamed HMS Wellington after her capture in 1810 but never commissioned and was broken up in 1812.
- HMS Hero was a 74-gun launched in 1816 and renamed HMS Wellington later that year. She was renamed HMS Akbar 1862.
- HMS Wellington (U65) was a Grimsby-class sloop launched in 1934. After World War II she was converted to "Head Quarters Ship" HQS Wellington at Chatham Dockyard. Since December 1946 she has been moored at Victoria Embankment, where she serves as the floating livery hall of the Honourable Company of Master Mariners.
