Thorp Arch is a village and civil parish near Wetherby, West Yorkshire, England in the City of Leeds metropolitan borough. The village is on the north bank of the River Wharfe which separates it from Boston Spa to the south. It has a primary school and public house. Historically the parish of Thorp Arch was in the Ainsty, a division of Yorkshire separate from the ridings. It had a population of 1,123 in 2001,[1] increasing to 1,591 at the 2011 census.[2]

The village is adjacent to Thorp Arch Trading Estate, Wealstun Prison, and the British Library.
