Melton and Belvoir Rural District was a rural district of Leicestershire, England, from 1935 to 1974.

It was formed in 1935 from the merger of the Melton Mowbray Rural District and the Belvoir Rural District, with part also going to Melton Mowbray Urban District. In 1936 (a year after the merger of the two districts), a number of parishes were merged again.

In 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972 the district merged with the Melton Mowbray Urban District to form the new non-metropolitan district of Melton, commonly known locally as Melton Borough.
