Thorpe St. Andrew is a small town and suburb of Norwich in the English county of Norfolk. It is situated about two miles east of the city centre, outside the city boundary in the District of Broadland. It constitutes a civil parish covering an area of 705 ha (1,740 acres) which had a population of 13,762 according to the 2001 UK census.

Thorpe lies on the River Yare which is part of the Norfolk Broads network of navigable rivers. Thorpe Green is on the main Yarmouth Road and gives access to the river with the opposite bank being an island after the creation of the new cut which allowed vessels to make their way to and from the city of Norwich without traversing the village via two low bridges that carry the railway to Yarmouth, Lowestoft, Cromer and Sheringham. Once the location of thriving boat yards, Thorpe Island now offers mooring for many liveaboard vessels.
