Bromley Rural District was located in northwest Kent, England from 1894 to 1934. Its area now forms part of the London Borough of Bromley in Greater London. It did not include the main settlement of Bromley; which constituted the Municipal Borough of Bromley. Mottingham parish was an exclave of the district.

It was created under the Local Government Act 1894 based on the existing Bromley Rural Sanitary District. It initially consisted of fifteen civil parishes:
