Westenhanger is a small village in south-east Kent, England. It is located around 3 miles (5 km) north-west of Hythe and just south of junction 11 of the M20 motorway. Stone Street, the Roman road from nearby Lympne to Canterbury, passes through the village. It is in the civil parish of Stanford.
Westenhanger is home to Folkestone Racecourse, which during World War II also served as an airfield, RAF Westenhanger. It closed for redevelopment in December 2012. Another attraction is Westenhanger Castle, located beside the grandstand of the racecourse.
