Tikkurila (Swedish: Dickursby) is a district of the municipality of Vantaa, Finland. Located in the eastern half of the Helsinki conurbation, some 16 kilometres (10 mi) north of the capital's downtown district, it is the administrative and commercial hub of Vantaa, although Myyrmäki is a rival shopping centre within the municipality and Helsinki itself exerts a massive commercial pull on the area as a whole.

Tikkurila's most popular attraction by far is the Heureka science park. Because of this, and its central location, Tikkurila railway station is one of the busiest in Vantaa. As the nearest mainline station to Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, it is served by all the high-speed Pendolino trains on the Helsinki to Tampere and Lahti routes as well as other long-distance services.

Some of the other communities surrounding Tikkurila are Jokiniemi, Simonkylä, Hiekkaharju, and Puistola in Helsinki municipality.
