Thorp Arch is a village and parish in the West Riding of Yorkshire, in the Ainsty wapentake.

The village is on the north bank of the River Wharfe which separates it from Boston Spa in Barkston Ash Wapentake to the south. It has a primary school and public house. It had a population of 1,123 in 2001,[1] increasing to 1,591 at the 2011 census.[2]

The village is adjacent to Thorp Arch Trading Estate, Wealstun Prison, and the British Library Document Supply Centre.[3]

The village railway station, now closed, was next to the trading estate on the closed Harrogate to Church Fenton Line. Current day public transport is provided by bus route 7 to Harrogate, Wetherby and Leeds.

Leeds United's training ground and academy are based on Walton Road. The facility was opened in 1990 to replace one adjacent to the club's Elland Road football stadium in Leeds.
