Coordinates: Newington is a village in Kent, England one mile (1.6 km) west-north-west of Folkestone. It gives its name to Newington-Shepway Parish Council, which has five councillors, and includes the hamlets of Arpinge and Beachborough. The village lies to the north of the M20 motorway and the A20 road; the Channel Tunnel complex is nearby.
The ecclesiastical parish was known as Newington-next-Hythe, the latter town being 2 1⁄2 miles (4.0 km) to the south-west; the parish church is dedicated to St Nicholas. Nearby there used to be a 13th-century Augustinian priory, founded in 1253 by Sir John Maunsell, who became a counsellor of King Henry III.
