Swanscombe and Greenhithe is a civil parish in the Borough of Dartford in Kent, England. The two villages which give the parish its name are both located on the south bank of the River Thames, approximately midway between Dartford town and Gravesend.

Swanscombe village is an ancient one. The area today is undergoing a good deal of regeneration, from industry (cement works at one time dominated it) to housing and lighter industrial use. Dartford Borough Council has therefore dedicated a Neighbourhood Renewal Officer to oversee its development. Greenhithe railway station also serves the Bluewater shopping centre.
