Upper Heyford is a village and civil parish in the Cherwell District of Oxfordshire, England about 6 miles (10 km) northwest of Bicester. The 2011 Census recorded the parish's population as 1,295.

Upper Heyford is on the east bank of the River Cherwell. "Upper" distinguishes it from Lower Heyford which is about 1 mile (1.6 km) downstream (or "lower") along the Cherwell valley. Upper Heyford has access to the Oxford Canal from Allens Lane (at Allens Lock) which runs parallel to the River Cherwell. The canal flows from Banbury and Somerton to the north towards Lower Heyford and to the south towards Oxford.
