Gorebridge is a post town and former mining village in Midlothian, Scotland. The village gets its name from the bridge across the River Gore, a tributary of the South Esk. It was the home of Scotland's first gunpowder mill, at the Gore Water, that started operating in 1794.

Gorebridge has an annual Gala Day which always takes place on the 3rd Saturday in June. This is much like a town fair, with rides and games. The gala day has a tradition of picking a Town King and Queen from the primary schools.

Gorebridge has 4 primary schools, Gorebridge Primary, Stobhill Primary, St Andrews RC Primary and Gore Glen Primary.

Greenhall High school used to serve the town but closed down in 1994. Local children now attend nearby Newbattle Community High School, Lasswade High School or St David's RC High School.

Gorebridge's local football team is juniors Arniston Rangers who play home games at Newbyres Park.

Annette Crosbie, known to many as the long suffering wife of Victor Meldrew, played by fellow Scot Richard Wilson in the BBC comedy series One Foot in the Grave, is a former resident of Gorebridge. The Reverend David Arnott, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland for 2011-12, was minister at Gorebridge Parish Church in the 1970s.

In the Gore Glen there is a shallow cave, named "The King's Cave". According to legend a thief used to steal cattle and hide in this nearby cave. It is not, as some think, named after Robert the Bruce, who was said to have hidden here after defeat at the hands of the English.
