Tynedale, is a local government district in south-west Northumberland, England. It had a resident population of 58,808 according to Census 2001, and is named after the River Tyne (and also the old Tynedale ward). Its main towns are Hexham, Haltwhistle and Prudhoe. The district contains part of Hadrian's Wall.

With an area of 2,219 km² it is the second largest English district, after the East Riding of Yorkshire. It is bigger than several English counties, including Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, and Hertfordshire. It is also the second-least densely populated district (behind Eden, Cumbria). The current district was formed on April 1, 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, and was a merger of Hexham and Prudhoe urban districts, along with Bellingham, Haltwhistle and Hexham Rural Districts.

Tynedale was historically a liberty created alongside Hexhamshire by Henry I of England.

The district will be abolished as part of the 2009 structural changes to local government in England.
