Linslade was an urban district in the administrative county of Buckinghamshire, England from 1897 to 1965. It comprised the single civil parish of Linslade which prior to 1897 was part of Wing Rural District and had been part of the Leighton Buzzard Rural Sanitary District until 1894.

As part of a county boundary change in 1965 Linslade UD was abolished along with Leighton Buzzard Urban District in Bedfordshire and the new Bedfordshire urban district of Leighton-Linslade was created.

The majority of the parish comprising the town of Linslade was combined with Leighton Buzzard parish to create the new parish of Leighton-Linslade encompassing the twin towns of Linslade and Leighton Buzzard. A small portion of the former Linslade parish remained in Buckinghamshire and was subsumed back into Wing RD.
