East Hardwick is a village and civil parish in the City of Wakefield in West Yorkshire, England. It has a population of 191.[1] Until 1974 it was part of Osgoldcross Rural District.

The name 'East Hardwick' has its origins in Old English. The 'East' distinguishes it from West Hardwick, and 'Hardwick' comes from the Old English phrase heorde-wīc, meaning a herd farm or a farm for livestock. The village was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Harduic.

The A639 road cuts through the western portion of the village, linking the settlement with Pontefract to the north and the A1 and Doncaster to the south-east.

There is also a small church: St Stephen's. There is no village shop or post office.
