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.
The Anglican Church of St Augustine of Canterbury is Grade I listed. It has a 13th-century chancel and a nave built in 1633. 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).
Upton Lovell has its own parish council but almost all local government functions are carried out by Wiltshire Council, a 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.
