Wing Rural District was a rural district in the administrative county of Buckinghamshire, England from 1894 to 1974.

It was created under the Local Government Act 1894 from the parts of both the Leighton Buzzard and the Berkhampstead Rural Sanitary Districts that were in Buckinghamshire. In 1897 Linslade was transferred to the newly created Linslade Urban District.

It was merged into the Aylesbury Vale district in 1974 under the Local Government Act 1972.
