Upton Lovell is an ancient settlement, with a medieval Church of England parish church dedicated Saint Augustine. Its parish registers are kept at the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre for the years 1654-1992 (baptisms), 1654-1975 (marriages), and 1653-1991 (burials).
The village's pub is called the Prince Leopold, in memory of Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany, the youngest son of Queen Victoria, who lived at Boyton Manor in the neighbouring village of Boyton. He died of haemophilia in 1884.
Upton Lovell has its own parish council, but almost all local government functions are now carried out by Wiltshire Council, a new unitary authority created in 2009, with its principal offices at County Hall in Trowbridge. The village is represented in parliament by Andrew Murrison and in Wiltshire Council by Christopher Newbury, both Conservatives.
