Regent's Park and Kensington North was a constituency in Central London and west London represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elected one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election.

The constituency was created in 1997 from parts of the former seats of Westminster North & Kensington. It was abolished at the 2010 general election.

With its stark contrasts between prosperity and deprivation, the constituency should have been highly competitive marginal between the Conservative Party and Labour Party in an even year, although for the three general elections of its existence it was won firmly by Labour. Before its creation it was considered a constituency likely to produce low swings which would be won on differential turnout, similar to its predecessor seats. However, in the political climate of the late 1990s and early 2000s this proved not to be the case.
