Swanley Village is a small village in the Sevenoaks District of Kent, England located 1 mile north east of Swanley.

Swanley Village was originally known as Swanley but with the arrival of the London, Chatham and Dover Railway line, specifically the junction between the Chatham Main Line and the Maidstone East Line to the west of the village, a new settlement grew up. This was called "Swanley Junction", but soon grew and became known as "Swanley", with the village thus becoming known as "Swanley Village".

Its church is dedicated to St Paul. The local pubs are "The Lamb" and "The Red Lion".
