Wykey is a hamlet in Shropshire, England.

It is approximately 2 miles north of the larger village of Ruyton-XI-Towns, and is recognised as one of the "XI" towns.

In the centre of the village one can find the rare sight of a 19th-century red postbox and red telephone box, which amount to its only facilities.

The main office of Quiller Publishing [1], the UK's largest Country Sports publisher, is also located here.
