The Metropolitan Borough of Woolwich was a metropolitan borough in the County of London from 1900 to 1965.

Most of it was amalgamated with the Metropolitan Borough of Greenwich to form the London Borough of Greenwich, but small parts, including North Woolwich, north of the river were instead included in the London Borough of Newham.

The borough was formed from the civil parishes of Woolwich, Plumstead, and Eltham.
