Earls Croome is a village and civil parish in the Malvern Hills District in the county of Worcestershire, England.

The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book, 1086, as Crumba. The first part of its name is derived from the Earl of Coventry who had Earl's Croome Court as a residence opposite the village church. The church is St. Nicholas Church of England.

For the 2000 millennial celebration a map was produced about the village history called "The Parish of Earl's Croome 2000". A book was also produced.
