Wincheap is a road that gives its name to a southwest suburb of Canterbury in Kent, England. It forms part of the A28 road, stretching for nearly a mile from the city wall, close by Canterbury East railway station, to the over-crossing of the A2 and the parish of Thanington Without. There is also a petrol station there.
Wincheap was established by the early 13th century. There are two theories about the name, either it comes from the Saxon Wenchiape, a wine market, or from Weychep from the old English Waegnceap, a wagon, which might have been parked outside the city walls.
