East Langdon is a village in the Dover district of Kent, England, five miles NE of Dover town. The population is included in the civil parish of Langdon

East Langdon was mentioned in the Domesday Book. The word Langdon goes back to Old English, meaning long hill. The first reference to the village, in 861, mentions one Langandune, but a reference in 1291 mentions Estlangedoun and Westlangedone, the latter village of West Langdon being located about one mile to the north west.

The church is dedicated to Saint Augustine. The remains of West Langdon Abbey are nearby.
