Trimdon is a village in County Durham, in England. It is situated 9 miles west of Hartlepool. It is a former mining village which is adjacent to Trimdon Colliery, Trimdon Grange, Deaf Hill and Trimdon Station. Locally, to distinguish it from these it is known as Trimdon Village or simply "The Village".

Trimdon Labour Club (now closed and the building reused as licensed premises) was the setting for some of the former prime minister and constituency MP, Tony Blair's constituency speeches. Blair's local house was in nearby Trimdon Colliery.
