Belvoir Rural District was a rural district in Leicestershire, England from 1894 to 1935. The rural district was formed under the Local Government Act 1894 from the part of the Grantham Rural Sanitary District that was in Leicestershire. It was a small district covering just under 18,000 acres and contained nine parishes. It was named after the village of Belvoir and its castle which was the most prestigious building in the district.

Under the County Review Orders of the 1930s it was merged with the Melton Mowbray Rural District to form the Melton and Belvoir Rural District. The merger took effect in 1935.
