Longworth is a friendly and active village. The primary school has an OFSTED 'Outstanding' rating. A film club meets once a month and shows recent films, a good way to keep up with friends. There are Pilates and yoga clubs, a weekly Keep Fit class for the over 50s and a Saturday Run Club which also organises a registered 10 km run and Fun Run in September. There is a monthly village library, a monthly coffee morning in the village hall, and open gardens are held every year to raise funds for a village charity. The church is part of a benefice of seven churches located in villages around the area.

There are no shops in the village but the Post Office in Southmoor (c. 1 mile) is very good and there is a hairdresser, newsagent and grocery shop. A wider selection of shops can be found in Witney (c. 10 miles), Abingdon (c. 10 miles), Oxford (c. 10 miles) and Faringdon (c. 8 miles). The local farmer in Hinton Waldrist sells fresh vegetables, a half-mile walk. Others in the village sell fresh eggs if they have spare.

The main feature of the village is the Blue Boar public house. There is a wealth of popular footpaths in the surrounding countryside, offering plenty of dog-walking, and the River Thames lies within a couple of miles.

Access to London can be gained from the M40 at Oxford or M4 north of Newbury, with mainline trains running from Oxford, Oxford Parkway and Didcot Parkway to London.
