South West Cambridgeshire is a former United Kingdom Parliamentary constituency. Created in 1983 upon the abolition of the Cambridgeshire constituency, it was abolished in 1997 and succeeded by the constituencies of South Cambridgeshire and Huntingdon.


The District of South Cambridgeshire wards of Arrington, Barrington and Shepreth, Barton, Bassingbourn, Bourn, Comberton, Duxford, Foxton, Gamlingay, Great Shelford, Hardwick, Harston, Haslingfield, Ickleton, Little Shelford, Melbourn, Meldreth, Orwell, Papworth, Sawston, Stapleford, The Mordens, and Whittlesford, the District of Huntingdon wards of Buckden, Eaton Ford, Eaton Socon, Eynesbury, Gransden, Paxton, Priory Park, Staughton, and The Offords, and the City of Cambridge wards of Queen Edith's and Trumpington.

The constituency combined territory from three pre-1974 local authorities, which had been included in the expanded non-metropolitan county of Cambridgeshire from 1974. It was the south west part of the old Cambridgeshire (with a small part of Cambridge) and the south of Huntingdonshire.

52.6% of the constituency came from the old administrative county and parliamentary constituency of Cambridgeshire. 29.7% originated from the former administrative county and county constituency of Huntingdonshire. The remaining 17.7% of the area had been part of the old borough constituency of Cambridge.
