High Royds hospital is a now-closed psychiatric hospital south of the village of Menston, West Yorkshire, England. It was first opened on 8 October 1888, as the West Riding Pauper Lunatic Asylum, and was closed on 25 February 2003. Although this date is given in the High Royds book the final two wards, office, canteen etc did not close until June 2003.

Since its closure, the site has been used as a film set for the film Asylum, as well as for the television series No Angels and Bodies.
Leeds band Kaiser Chiefs have written a song ("Highroyds") about the former hospital. Three of the band (Nick Hodgson, Nick 'Peanut' Baines and Simon Rix) used to attend St Mary's Roman Catholic Comprehensive School, the school that faces High Royds hospital.
English alternative rock band Kasabian have named their third studio album West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum after the High Royds former name although the band actually originate from Leicester and have no connection to Leeds.
