Leigh (historic spelling Lyghe) is a village and a civil parish located in the Sevenoaks district of Kent, England. It is located six miles (10 km) south of Sevenoaks town and three miles (5 km) west of Tonbridge. Although it derives its name from the same source as Lea, it is pronounced /ˈlaɪ/ (deprecated template) "lye".

There is a large village green; nearby is Hall Place, once Leigh Hall, occasionally open to the public, built in 1876. The parish church (13th century) is dedicated to St Mary.
