Frizinghall is a district in the city of Bradford, West Yorkshire, lying about two miles north of the city centre close to the town of Shipley, itself a part of the City of Bradford along with such other nearby towns as Keighley and Ilkley.

Frizinghall is notable as the birthplace of famous cricketer (and later commentator) Jim Laker.

The fictitious town of Frizinghall in Wilkie Collins' book The Moonstone is near the Yorkshire coast.
