Leominster (district) was a local government district in England from 1 April 1974 to 1 April 1998 with its administrative seat in the town of Leominster.

It was one of two districts in a new county of Hereford and Worcester created in 1974, following the Local Government Act 1972) that merged the historical counties of Herfordshire and Worcestershire and crossed the traditional border, the range of Malvern Hills, between the two counties. 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, and from, in Worcestershire, parts of the other district of Malvern Hills.

In 1998, the district of Leominster was abolished, with the Herefordshire parts becoming part of the new unitary districts of Herefordshire Council and the Worcestershire parts becoming part of the newly defined Worcestershire district of Malvern Hills[1] . Malvern Hills District now comprises remaining parts of its boundary and new additions while other parts were taken over by Herefordshire Council.[2]
