Mid Sussex is a local government district in the English non metropolitan county of West Sussex, within the historic county of Sussex. It contains the towns of East Grinstead, Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill.

The district was created on 1 April 1974 from parts of East Sussex: the urban districts of Cuckfield, Burgess Hill, and East Grinstead and nearly all of Cuckfield Rural District, but the far northwest of the rural district was transferred to Crawley.

The district borders the Tandridge District of Surrey to the north, the Wealden District and the Lewes District to the east, and Brighton and Hove (unitary authority) to the south, all in East Sussex, and the Horsham District to the west and the Crawley District to the northwest, also in West Sussex.

The Prime Meridian passes through the district which has most of the headwaters of the River Ouse, Sussex. Its largest body of water is Ardingly Reservoir. The north of the area is the High Weald and it includes sections of Ashdown Forest.
