Langton Green is a village in the borough of Tunbridge Wells, England, lying around two miles west of the town centre along the A264. It is located within the parish of Speldhurst although it has its own church on the village green—the Grade II*-listed All Saints, built in 1862–63 by George Gilbert Scott.[1] There is also a village primary school, Langton Green CP School. The Hare public house is well known for its cuisine.

The village is considered to be affluent and is represented locally by Conservative councillors. There is a private school called Holmewood House located in the village and the former Metropolitan Police Commissioner Lord Condon lives there. The famous table-top football game, Subbuteo, was invented and produced for many years in Langton Green.[2]
