From Langley Park to Memphis is the third album by English pop band Prefab Sprout, and was released in March 1988.

The title is taken from a lyric to the song, "The Venus of the Soup Kitchen", and refers to the village of Langley Park, County Durham in England, and the city of Memphis, Tennessee in the United States. "Nightingales" features the harmonica playing of Stevie Wonder, while Pete Townshend plays acoustic guitar on "Hey Manhattan!". All songs on the album are written by frontman Paddy McAloon, who also produced many of the tracks.

The album reached number five in the UK Albums Chart, the highest position for any studio generated album recorded by the band. However, their greatest hits compilation album, The Best of - A Life of Surprises, peaked at number 3 in August 1992.

Five singles were released to promote the album; in order of release these were "Cars & Girls", "The King of Rock 'N' Roll", "Hey Manhattan!", "Nightingales" and "The Golden Calf". A sixth track, "I Remember That", was subsequently released as a single to promote A Life of Surprises.
