Monks Horton is a small civil parish in the Shepway District of Kent, England. It is located 3 miles (5 km) north of Hythe. Within the civil parish are the hamlets of Horton (Monks Horton) and Broad Street (Monks Horton). The parish is governed by a parish meeting, rather than a parish council, because of its small size. The name comes from the fact that a medieval priory was built here. The population of the parish in 2001 was 95.

Monks Horton was a civil parish in Elham Rural District from 1894 until 1974, and since 1974 has been part of the Shepway non-metropolitan district.
