The village of Thackley is a small suburban area to the north of the city of Bradford, West Yorkshire in England. The village is loosely bordered by the village of Idle to the south, to the west by the West Royd area of Shipley and elsewhere by the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. Thackley is the northernmost part of Bradford south of the river Aire.

Historically, Thackley was in the ecclesiastical parish of Calverley in the Morley Division of the wapentake of Agbrigg and Morley. Windhill was in the civil parish of Idle until 1899 and in the City of Bradford from 1899 until 1974.
