Broad Crag is a fell in the English Lake District. By some counts it is the fifth highest peak in England.

It forms part of the Scafell chain, and lies about 0.5 km northeast of Scafell Pike. Ill Crag lies immediately to the west, with Great End at the end of the chain being about 1.5 km away.

Broad Crag may be climbed en route to Scafell Pike, via a path from Esk Hause.

Broad Crag is one of very few fells in the lake District not to be given a separate chapter in Alfred Wainwright's celebrated guide books. It therefore does not qualify as a Wainwright, though it is a Hewitt.
