Bridget of York (November 10, 1480 - 1517) was the tenth child and seventh daughter of Edward IV of England and Elizabeth Woodville.

She was a younger sister of Elizabeth of York, Mary of York, Cecily of York, Edward V of England, Margaret Plantagenet (Princess of York), Richard of Shrewsbury, 1st Duke of York, Anne of York and George Plantagenet, Duke of Bedford and Catherine of York. She was also an aunt of Henry VIII of England.

She was born in Eltham, Kent and was baptized by Edward Story, Bishop of Chichester. Her parents decided at the time of her birth that this daughter would be dedicated to a religious life, and Princess Bridget is believed to have been entrusted to Dartford Priory, Dartford, in 1487. She would become a nun and spend the rest of her life within its walls. She maintained correspondence throughout her life with her sister the Queen, who also paid for her various minor expenses.
