Sir John Boys House, also known as The Crooked House, is a skewed 17th century half-timbered building located at the extreme end of Palace Street in Canterbury, Kent, England. The most noticeable feature is the front door, which leans at an exaggerated angle and was built with severely skewed corners to fit the door frame.

Above the door is painted: ”a very old house bulging over the road…leaning forward, trying to see who was passing on the narrow pavement below….” Charles Dickens 1849.
