Radnorshire was a constituency of the House of Commons of the Parliament of England then of the Parliament of Great Britain from 1707 to 1800 and of the Parliament of the United Kingdom from 1801 to 1918. It elected one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system.

In 1918, having too small a population to continue electing an MP in its right, Radnorshire was combined with the neighbouring Breconshire to form a new Brecon and Radnor constituency.
