Warden is a small holiday village located on the northeast coast of the Isle of Sheppey in Kent, England. The largest residential part of Warden is generally called Warden Bay. Where the beach becomes inaccessible and the cliffs become prominent, the area is generally referred to as Warden Point. In the UK census of 2011 it had a population of 1,763.
Warden was originally an ancient parish in the Isle of Sheppey Liberty and also in the Milton Hundred. Between 1894 and 1974 it became a civil parish in the Sheppey Rural District. Since 1974 the area is covered by the non-metropolitan Swale District.
