Leominster was a local government district in England from 1 April 1974 to 1 April 1998. Its main town was Leominster.

It was one of two districts in the newly-formed county of Hereford and Worcester to cross the traditional border between Herefordshire and Worcestershire, the other being Malvern Hills. It was formed from, in Herefordshire, the municipal borough of Leominster, the urban district of Kington, Kington Rural District, Leominster And Wigmore Rural District, Weobley Rural District. The only part to come from Worcestershire was the Tenbury Rural District.

In 1998, the district was abolished, with the Herefordshire parts becoming part of the new unitary districts of Herefordshire; and the Worcestershire parts becoming part of the new Worcestershire district of Malvern Hills.
