Hollingworth is a village within the Metropolitan Borough of Tameside, in Greater Manchester, England. It is about twelve miles (19 km) east of Manchester on the Derbyshire border near Glossop. It is the name of a family who owned much of the surrounding area from before the time of the Norman conquest.

According to data from A Vision of Britain through Time, Hollingworth was an urban district in the county of Cheshire between 1894 and 1936. In 1936 it was abolished and the land absorbed into Longdendale Urban District where it remained until the establishment of Greater Manchester in 1974.
