Oulton is a village in the City of Leeds metropolitan borough, West Yorkshire, England, between Leeds and Wakefield. It is at the junction of the A639 and A642 roads. Though now adjoining the village of Woodlesford, it was once quite separate. It was once part of the urban district of Rothwell and remains part of the Leeds Metropolitan Ward of the same name.

Oulton Hall was built in 1850 and is now a hotel and conference centre.

Oulton's most famous son is Richard Bentley who became Master of Trinity College, Cambridge.
