Milton Keynes was a borough constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom from 1983 until 1992.

It covered the north Buckinghamshire Borough of Milton Keynes, including Milton Keynes itself (and thus its older settlements such as Bletchley) together with Newport Pagnell, Olney and the rural area to the north of Milton Keynes.

The Borough of Milton Keynes was established in 1974, seven years after the new town was first designated. Before 1983, the Borough was part of the Buckingham constituency; however, its population had expanded to such an extent that a new constituency was created. The sitting Buckingham MP, William Benyon of the Conservative Party, was elected for the new seat, and was its only ever MP.

In 1992, in a rare interim review of constituency boundaries, Milton Keynes was split into two separate constituencies: North East Milton Keynes and Milton Keynes South West.
