This article describes the village in England, for other places and uses see: Wye (disambiguation)

Wye is an historic village in Kent, England, located about 12 miles from Canterbury. Its modern population is about 2,300 but is expanded by an additional 900 students at the Agricultural College of London University. Wye is located at an ancient ford of the River Stour, and a Roman camp and villa stood at the site. The college was founded in 1497 as a Latin school and seminary by John Cardinal Kempe, Archbishop of Canterbury and Lord Chancellor.

Changing transportation patterns in the 19th century reduced its importance, and left today's historic village and agricultural center.
