John Britton FSA (7 July 1771 – 1 January 1857) was an English antiquary, topographer, author and editor. He was a prolific populariser of the work of others, rather than an undertaker of original research. He is remembered as co-author (mainly in association with his friend Edward Wedlake Brayley) of nine volumes in the series The Beauties of England and Wales (1801–1814); and as sole author of the Architectural Antiquities of Great Britain (9 vols, 1805–1814) and Cathedral Antiquities of England (1814–1835).

John Britton published his Cathedral antiquities as follows:
