Arthur Geoffrey Dyke Acland (17 May 1908 – 14 September 1964), known as Geoffrey Acland, was a British Liberal Party politician.

Born near Hanover Square in London[1] to Liberal Party MP Francis Dyke Acland, Geoffrey was the younger brother of Richard Acland, who later became a Common Wealth Party and Labour Party MP. He studied at Rugby School, Trinity College, Cambridge and the University of Grenoble.[2] During World War II, he served with the Border Regiment, rising to become a Captain.

After the war, Acland became joint managing director of some paper mills, and he stood unsuccessfully for the Liberal Party in Westmorland at each election from 1945 to 1959. From 1954 to 1956, he was the Chairman of the Liberal Party.
