A classic relaxed double. Unlike the prototype 3C 310, there is no compact core, although there is a relatively bright clump of emission, possibly unresolved transversely, at the position of the host galaxy (marked with a red dot).

The compact source just to the east of the host galaxy is probably an unrelated background object; there is nothing visible on the Palomar Sky survey there.

Sometimes 3C314.1 is claimed to be in a galaxy cluster, but measurement of the local density of galaxies by Allington-Smith et al. (1993) found no sign of this; in fact 3C 314.1 has fewer neighbours than average for a large elliptical galaxy.
