The London Borough of Redbridge is a London borough in East London, England. The name comes from a bridge over the River Roding; it was made of red brick, unlike other bridges in the area made of white stone.

It includes the areas:

The Great Eastern Mainline from Liverpool Street station passes through the borough east to west with stations at Ilford, Seven Kings and Goodmayes. These are all planned to be on the cross-London Crossrail route.

The London Underground Central Line also passes through the borough, with stations at Snaresbrook, South Woodford and Woodford on the Epping branch and Wanstead, Redbridge, Gants Hill, Newbury Park, Barkingside, Fairlop and Hainault on the Hainault branch, following the route of the A12 road from Wanstead to Newbury Park.

The borough was formed in 1965 by the merger of the Municipal Borough of Ilford and Municipal Borough of Wanstead and Woodford with part of the Municipal Borough of Dagenham and part of Chigwell Urban District, all of which had previously been part of Essex.
