Charles Frederick Wardle (born 23 August 1939) was a Conservative Party member of the British Parliament for Bexhill and Battle.

He announced he would not contest the 2001 election in early 2000 after it was disclosed that he was doing consultancy for Mohammed Al-Fayed. He was replaced by Gregory Barker in the 2001 General Election. He supported the United Kingdom Independence Party's (UKIP) Nigel Farage in that election to replace him.

In the Conservative government, Wardle had been an immigration minister under the then-Home Secretary, Michael Howard. In the 2005 general election, he appeared with the Labour Party to denounce his former boss's plans on immigration and to endorse Labour.
