Tockwith with Wilstrop is the name of a current civil parish in Harrogate Borough in North Yorkshire, England. The area was previously located in Wetherby Rural District.

Since the reorganization under Harrogate District in 1974, the area covered by Wilstrop has also been merged with Tockwich, this time under the name Tockwith with Wilstrop.
