Der Whitfield-Preis (engl. Whitfield Prize) ist ein jährlich von der Royal Historical Society verliehener Preis für das beste Buch zur britischen oder irischen Geschichte des Jahres. Es muss das erste Buch des Autors auf diesem Gebiet sein. Der Preis ist (Stand 2015) mit 1000 Pfund dotiert und wird seit 1976 verliehen.

Bis 2013 bezog sich das Jahr des Preises auf den jeweiligen Wettbewerbszeitraum, wenn auch der Preis erst im Folgejahr vergeben wurde. Seit 2015 wird als Jahr des Preises das Vergabejahr angegeben.
