Winch Wen (Welsh: Winsh-wen, meaning "white well") is a suburban district in the Bon-y-maen ward of the City and County of Swansea, Wales. It lies some 3.5 miles (5 km) north-east of Swansea city centre.

The district consists principally of residential housing situated to the south of Carmel Road, although it also includes an industrial estate - lying a little further north, and also known simply as Winch Wen - which is home to a number of small factories and warehouses.

To the immediate east of Winch Wen lies Pentre Dwr, a predominantly farming and rural area.
