The Church of England parish church of Saint Nicholas dates from the 13th century. It was restored in 1867 by the architect Charles Buckeridge. St. Nicholas' parish is now part of the Benefice of Icknield.
Britwell Priory is northeast of the village.
The village had a pub called 'The Goose' which closed controversially in July 2010. In April 2012 the pub reopened as The Red Lion. Britwell Salome Cricket Club has two Saturday teams, the 1st 11 play in Oxfordshire Cricket Association League Division Three and the 2nd 11 play in Oxfordshire Cricket Association Division Nine.
Southeast of the village is Britwell Hill. The ancient Ridgeway runs past the hill. There is an excellent view of rural Oxfordshire looking down from the very straight road leading from the hill to the village.
