Woodstock, sometimes called New Woodstock, was a parliamentary constituency in the United Kingdom. It comprised the town of Woodstock in the county of Oxfordshire and (from 1832) the surrounding countryside and villages, and elected two Members of Parliament from its re-enfranchisement in 1553 until 1832. From 1832 until its abolition in 1918, the seat elected only one member.
In 1885, the Woodstock borough was abolished but the name was transferred to a county constituency, one of the three divisions into which the previous Oxfordshire constituency had been divided; this constituency was alternatively called Mid Oxfordshire. In 1918, Oxfordshire lost one county seat, and the Woodstock constituency was divided between Banbury and Henley.
