Earsdon is a historical village in the borough of North Tyneside in the county of Tyne and Wear, England. It sits on the border of Northumberland (to which it belonged in the past), and is approximately two miles from Whitley Bay.

Earsdon was an urban district from 1894 to 1935, consisting of the four parishes of Earsdon, Backworth, Holywell, and Murton. It was then split between Seaton Valley, Tynemouth, and Whitley and Monkseaton, with Seaton Valley taking the bulk of the population of both the district and Earsdon parish.

The graveyard of St Alban's Anglican church is home to a memorial to the 204 men and boys killed in the Hartley Colliery Disaster of 1862, at the nearby village of New Hartley. There is also a war memorial in the village.

A second church, Earsdon Methodist Chapel, is located within a former quarry.

The children's television series Supergran was filmed in part in the village and The Beehive Inn near Earsdon was used for the filming of the 1976 film The Likely Lads.
