Drypool (archaic Dripole) is an area within the city of Kingston upon Hull, England.

Historically Drypool was a village, manor and later parish on the east bank River Hull at the confluence of the Humber Estuary and River Hull, it is now part of the greater urban area of Kingston upon Hull, and gives its name to a local government ward.

Drypool ward is a mixture of light industrial developments and housing, mainly terraced but including the Reckitt & Sons built model village development 'Garden Village', as well as the post 1980s housing development 'Victoria Dock Village' built on the infilled site of the former Victoria Dock. The area also includes The Deep aquarium, a secondary school, 7 primary schools, various hostels, a main shopping street, a swimming pool and leisure centre and two libraries.
