Aylesbury was, from 1894 to 1974, a local government district in Buckinghamshire, England. It was incorporated as a municipal borough in 1917.

The urban district took over the responsibilities of the disbanded Aylesbury Local Board District. The district contained the whole of the town and civil parish of Aylesbury. In 1917 the town was granted municipal borough status under the Municipal Corporations Act 1882.

In 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972 the municipal borough was abolished and replaced by the Aylesbury Vale district.
