Beswick is a village and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. The village is situated on the A164 road, about 6 miles (10 km) north of Beverley and 6 miles south of Driffield.

The civil parish is formed by the villages of Beswick and Kilnwick and the hamlet of Wilfholme. According to the 2011 UK census, Beswick parish had a population of 357,[1] a slight decline on the 2001 UK census figure of 372.[2]
