Capel is a village and civil parish in the Tunbridge Wells District of Kent, England. The parish is located on the north of the Weald, three miles (4.8 km) to the east of Tonbridge.

The parish Church of St Thomas à Becket is now redundant, and in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust. Services are held there four times a year, and the church is open to visitors daily. It contains some lovely 12th century wall paintings, originally there to help those who could not read learn the stories of the Bible; outside is a yew tree under which Thomas a Becket himself is supposed to have preached. The parish is now known as Tudeley-cum-Capel with Five Oak Green.

Capel also sports the Dovecote Inn, a fine traditional Kentish pub which received an award from CAMRA, The Campaign For Real Ale on 14 February 2009, marking the pub's inclusion in every edition of the Good Beer Guide for the previous 10 years.
