HMS Juno was an Eclipse-class protected cruiser built for the Royal Navy in the mid-1890s.

In 1901, she was one of two escort ships for Queen Mary) during their tour of the British Empire.

The following year she served in the cruiser squadron under the command of Captain Henry Peter Routh. In May 1902 she was taken into Portsmouth for a refit,[1] and the following month Captain David Beatty was appointed in command.[2] She served in the 1902 Coronation review before she was posted to the Mediterranean Fleet later that year.

In 1915 she was sent to the Persian Gulf and took part in an engagement at Bushire in July – August 1915 against Tangistani raids under Rais Ali Delvari.

Juno was sold for scrap in 1920.
