Rawcliffe Bridge is a small hamlet in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is situated approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) south-west of Goole and lies just south of the M62 motorway.

It forms part of the civil parish of Rawcliffe which lies just to the north-west. The hamlet was once served by a station on the Selby to Goole branch line, but this closed along with the line in June 1964.
