The Tower Division was a liberty, a historical form of local government, in the ancient county of Middlesexmarker, Englandmarker. It was also known as the Tower Hamlets, and took its name from being under the special jurisdiction of the Constable of the Tower of London. The name "Tower Hamlets" was subsequently used for the London Borough of Tower Hamletsmarker created in 1965.

The Tower Division was one of four divisions of the Hundred of Ossulstone. The other divisions were named Finsburymarker, Holbornmarker and Kensingtonmarker.

In 1829 the Tower Division contained the following "parishes, townships, precincts and places":
