East Keswick is a village and civil parish in the City of Leeds metropolitan borough, West Yorkshire, England. It lies four miles south west of Wetherby. The population of the civil parish as of the 2011 census was 1,146.
The village has two churches (one Methodist, one Anglican), a Post Office, butchers, village hall and two pubs (the Old Star and the Duke of Wellington). A third pub, the Travellers Rest, situated just outside the village closed in the 2000s; after lying derelict for several years it is now a children's nursery. The village had a school, however this closed in the late 1980s, leaving the nearest school in Bardsey. The post office closed in the mid-2010s.
The village is a conservation area surrounded by farmland. Its history has been chronicled in a Millennium Book and unusually it enjoys its own Wildlife Trust which manages large tracts of local land.
The village is situated close to the A58 road between Leeds and Wetherby. The First Leeds 99 route serves the village connecting it with Leeds, Wetherby and surrounding villages. There are no rail links close by.
