Arley is a civil parish in the North Warwickshire district of Warwickshire, England. The parish includes two settlements, New Arley and Old Arley. Old Arley is to the west of the Bourne Brook and the railway line, and New Arley is to the east.

Old Arley contains the mediaeval church of St Wilfred, and a Methodist church nearby. New Arley contains St Michael's C of E and St Joseph's Catholic Church, both originally built in response to the influx of miners in the first half of the 20th century. Arley's mining industry is now long gone. The two Anglican churches form one parish, and St Joseph's is run from St Anne's, Chapel End, Nuneaton.

Nearby places are Ansley and Astley.

Arley is the birthplace of footballer Nigel Winterburn and of cricketer Albert Wright.
