Two ships of the British Royal Navy have been called HMS Tonbridge, after the Kent town:

  • HMS Tonbridge was a Hunt-class minesweeper launched in 1918 and sold in 1928.
  • HMS Tonbridge was a 683-ton civilian ship built in 1924 but requisitioned by the Royal Navy as a netlayer during World War II. It was sunk near Great Yarmouth, Norfolk on 22 August 1941 by the German Air Force with the loss of 35 lives.
