Alan Kimber (1949 – 6 September 2012) was an English swimmer who won a silver medal in the 1500 m freestyle at the 1966 European Aquatics Championships.

He started swimming aged 14, at Southampton Swimming Club, where he later coached after retirement from competitions. He missed the 1968 Summer Olympics due to a shoplifting conviction. Two years later he was expelled from the national team after an incident of noisy disturbance.

He was married twice and had four sons: Anthony (b. 1974), Stuart (b. 1976), Ryan (b. 1978) and Andrew (b. 1987) and a daughter Ann (b. 1984). He died of cancer three weeks after being hospitalized.
