The Daventry District is a non-metropolitan local government district in Northamptonshire, England. Its council is based in the town of Daventry.

The district was created on 1 April 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, by a merger of the historic municipal borough of Daventry with the Daventry Rural District and most of the Brixworth Rural District.

At the 2011 UK Census, the district had a population of 77,843, a little under a third of whom (25,026) lived in the town of Daventry. Other significant settlements include Brixworth, Long Buckby and Weedon Bec. The rest of the district is predominantly rural.
