The London Convention was a treaty negotiated in 1884 between the United Kingdom, as the paramount power in South Africa, and the South African Republic (Zuid Afrikaansche Republiek). The London Convention superseded the 1881 Pretoria Convention.
The South African Republic was represented by the following delegates:
The convention incorporated the bulk of the earlier Pretoria Convention, but with two major differences.

The main outcome of the London Convention was that British suzerainty over the South African Republic was relinquished.
