In the centre of Cassington is a large village green, one of two greens in the village. On the green the large village hall has a dominant position. opposite the green is a row of stone cottages and a traditional village pub.

A footpath lined with lime trees next to the village school leads to the village church, St. Peter's, which is basically a Norman church with Gothic additions. Fragments of Mediaeval wall paintings survive in the church, including a Doom, a traditional term for a painting or other image of the Last Judgment, over the Norman chancel arch. For the history and full information about St. Peter's Church click here.

Another footpath leads to the part of the village known as Lower Cassington where there are a number of attractive old cottages and the second, much smaller, village green.

Cassington is just off the A40 trunk road about 5 miles north-west of Oxford and about three quarters of a mile east of Eynsham.
