A Place for Paedophiles is a British documentary that was televised on 21 April 2009. Produced and presented by Louis Theroux, the documentary ran for 60 minutes, and took place at Coalinga State Hospital, a hospital for paedophiles. Theroux was the first film-maker to be allowed to film and interview the patients at the hospital. The documentary can not legally be shown inside the United States as the patients are under psychological medical care and the showing would violate their Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 rights.

The program was widely praised for its approach to the subject of paedophilia. Leicester Mercury called the programme "a brilliantly-made, well-observed documentary. Fascinating, not sensationalist or sympathetic."
In 2010, Theroux received a Royal Television Society's award in the best presenter category for the documentary.
