This is a list of Acts of the Parliament of England during that body's existence prior to the Act of Union of 1707. For legislation passed after that date, see the list of Acts of Parliament in the United Kingdom.

The numbers after the titles of the Acts are the chapter numbers. Acts before 1962 are referenced using 'Year of reign', 'Monarch', c., 'Chapter number' — e.g. 16 Charles II c. 2 — to define a chapter of the appropriate statute book. Since 1962, the regnal year has been replaced by the calendar year. All recent Acts have a short title, or citation (e.g. Local Government Act 2003, National Health Service Act 1974).

For acts passed prior to the Acts of Parliament (Commencement) Act 1793, the year after the Act name is in accordance with the previous law in which Acts came into effect on the first day of the session in which they were passed, and therefore may be the year before they were actually passed through Parliament.

No Acts passed by the Long Parliament between 1640 and 1660 were considered valid after the Restoration, due to their lack of Royal Assent.
