Earith is a village and civil parish in the Fens of Cambridgeshire, England. It lies south of Chatteris and east of Huntingdon, in the District of Huntingdonshire. At Earith, two artificial diversion channels of the River Great Ouse, the Old Bedford River and the New Bedford River, leave the river on a course to Denver Sluice near Downham Market, where they rejoin the Great Ouse in its tidal part. At the 2001 census, it had a population of 1,677.

The village has a post office, a Tandoori Takeway, a Hair Salon, 1 pub (The Crown), a part-time surgery and a school. In June 2013 the Riverview Pub was converted into Earith Tearooms. The village does not have a parish church.

A business now occupies what was once the National School, and the Wesleyan chapel, erected in 1828, is now a private house.
