Salwick is a village near Kirkham and Preston in Lancashire, England. The village is largely rural and is an extension of the smaller Clifton to the south. It is in the borough of Fylde, and in the Parliamentary Constituency of Fylde. It is at gbmapping|SD466320, and is served by Salwick railway station.

The area of "Clifton With Salwick" was in the Archdeaconry of Richmond in the Diocese of Chester.

The etymology of Salwick is unclear. The "wick" may come from Old English "wic", meaning an earlier Romano-British settlement specialised in farming; but the "Sal(w)" element is unclear.
