Two ships of the Royal Navy have been named HMS Campania after the region of Campania in Italy:

  • The first Campania (1914), purchased in 1914, was a passenger liner converted to a seaplane tender. She collided with Royal Oak and Glorious in 1918 and sank in the Firth of Forth. The wrecksite was designated under the Protection of Wrecks Act on 1 December 2001.
  • The second Campania (D48) was an escort carrier launched in 1943. She served in World War II and was broken up in 1955.
