The following is a list of large council estates in the United Kingdom, identified as estates generally considered to have a population in excess of 10,000 (although population figures are not compiled for many estates, as they do not usually correspond to local government units).

Becontree in Dagenham is generally considered to be the largest council estate (in terms of population), with Wythenshawe in Greater Manchester the second largest. Seacroft in East Leeds, and Bransholme in Kingston upon Hull are contenders for third largest.
