The Bishop of Southwell and Nottingham is the diocesan bishop of the Church of England Diocese of Southwell and Nottinghammarker in the Province of York.

The diocese covers including the whole of Nottinghamshiremarker and a small area of South Yorkshiremarker. The see is in the town of Southwellmarker where the seat is located at the Cathedral and Collegiate Church of the Blessed Virgin Marymarker (also known as Southwell Minstermarker), which was elevated to cathedral status in 1884.

The diocese was created in 1884 under Queen Victoria. Until 2005 it was known simply by the name "Southwell"; Nottinghammarker was added to the title in that year.
