Hertford and Stevenage was a parliamentary constituency in Hertfordshire, which returned one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom from February 1974 until it was abolished for the 1983 general election.


It was a county constituency which as originally defined consisted of the borough of Hertford, the urban districts of Stevenage and Ware and the rural district of Hertford. Hertford and its rural district had previously been in the Hertford constituency, Stevenage in the Hitchin constituency and Ware in East Hertfordshire. After being used for only three general elections, a further round of boundary changes in 1983 saw Hertford and Stevenage abolished, Hertford and Ware joining Bishop Stortford in Hertford and Stortford while the remainder of the seat formed the basis of the new Stevenage constituency.
