Langham is a village in the county of Rutland in the East Midlands of England. It is situated about two miles north of Oakham.

The village is located on the main road, the A606, linking Oakham to Melton Mowbray.

It contains two pubs, the Wheatsheaf and the Noel Arms, and a Church of England primary school.

There is a parish church, the Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, dating in part from the 13th century. There is also a Baptist Chapel, built in 1854.

Famous inhabitants include Simon Langham, a 14th-century monk who became Archbishop of Canterbury.

Established in 1858, Langham was the home of the Ruddles Brewery, until it was closed in 1997. The water from the local well was said to give the beer a unique character and quality, which enhanced the brewery's reputation. The site of the brewery has now been demolished and replaced by a housing development.
