The River Wye passes to the west and north of the village, and a bridge connects Boughrood to Llyswen, a small village south of the river.
The village's church, St Cynog's, was built in 1854 on the site of a medieval graveyard. In 2004 the church had a new spire built, to replace one that was declared unsafe and demolished in the 1970s. The first wedding under the new spire took place on 10 June 2006. Thomas Bingham, Baron Bingham of Cornhill, KG PC QC (1933–2010), an eminent judge and jurist, is buried at St Cynog's.
Boughrood hosts the annual Llyswen & Boughrood Agricultural Show - it is usually held on the 3rd Saturday in August.
