Marske is a small crossroads village and civil parish in the English county of North Yorkshire.

It forms part of Richmondshire district and is some five miles due west of Richmond. It is on Marske Beck just before that river's confluence with the River Swale. Marske is on the boundary of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Marske was long associated with the Hutton family, landowners and High Sheriffs of Yorkshire.[2] Matthew Hutton, the archbishop of Canterbury, was born in Marske.

The civil parish now shares a grouped parish council with the civil parish of New Forest, known as Marske & New Forest Parish Council.[3]
