The River Salwarpe is a river in Worcestershire, England. Rising near Bromsgrove, it passes Stoke Prior, Upton Warren, Wychbold, Salwarpe, Droitwich (where the Droitwich Canal starts to run alongside it). After Droitwich, it meets the River Severn, near Hawford. Andrew Yarranton attempted unsuccessfully to make it navigable in the 1660s.

Tributaries include the Battlefield, Elmbridge and Hadley brooks.
