Gwilym Ednyfed Hudson Davies (born 4 December 1929) is a Welsh former politician.

Hudson Davies was educated at Dynevor Grammar School, Swansea, the University College, Wales in Swansea, and Balliol College, Oxford. He became a lecturer in government and a broadcaster.

Davies was elected Labour Party Member of Parliament (MP) for Conway in 1966, serving there until 1970. He was later elected for Caerphilly, in 1979; in 1981, he was among the Labour MPs who defected to the new Social Democratic Party.

In 1983, in Caerphilly, it was the Liberal side of the SDP-Liberal Alliance which put up a candidate. Davies therefore did not stand in Caerphilly, but was adopted in Basingstoke, he lost comprehensively as it was a strongly Conservative seat. The Liberals also did not win in Caerphilly.

Hudson-Davies remains active in public life as chairman of a museum trust in the New Forest.
