Marrick is a village and civil parish in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England. Located in the Yorkshire Dales, its main attraction is Marrick Priory, which is now a residential centre for outdoor education. The outdoor centre was converted from disused Priory buildings during the 1960s and has been providing a range of outdoor activities in the Yorkshire Dales for more than 40 years.

The Priory was originally established as a nunnery between 1140-1160.

The famous breeder of racehorses, William Blenkiron was born in Marrick.

Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Marrick was part of Reeth Rural District. Historically, it was an ecclesiastical parish in the Gilling West Wapentake.
