Broxtowe is a local government district with borough status in Nottinghamshire, England, between the City of Nottingham and the county border with Derbyshire. The population of the district as taken at the 2011 UK census was 109,487. Broxtowe's neighbour to the west is the Borough of Erewash in Derbyshire.

The district was formed on 1 April 1974 by a merger of the Beeston and Stapleford Urban District, the Eastwood Urban District and part of Basford Rural District. The borough's name was derived from the old Broxtowe Wapentake of Nottinghamshire, which covered a larger area.

The district was granted borough status in 1977.

Broxtowe has ten civil parishes of which three (Eastwood, Kimberley and Stapleford) have town councils. The unparished area of the borough covers the town of Beeston and the neighbouring places of Chilwell, Toton, Attenborough and Bramcote—this is the area of the former Beeston and Stapleford Urban District, without Stapleford which was parished in 1987.
