East Kennett is a small village in the Kennet valley on the south side of the river. The buildings in the village comprise a colourful variety of architectural styles, thatched, stone and brick, and at its heart is East Kennett Manor House, a three-storey brick house from the late 18th century which was extended in the 19th century and again in 1925.

Also in the centre of the village is the Victorian parish church, Christ Church and the 17th century Manor Farmhouse, the older part of which is constructed from the local sarsen sandstone.

Half a mile to the south of the village is East Kennett Long Barrow, a long mound surrounded by trees to which there is no public access. East Kennett Long Barrow survives relatively well apart from to the south-east where some of the chamber stones are visible. It is slightly longer than its partner at West Kennett.

East Kennett is just south of the A4 trunk road about 5 miles west of Marlborough.
