Welcome to Visit Knowle

Welcome to Visit Knowle

Knowle is a haven for independent shops, salons, restaurants, cafes and businesses.

Blogs

Knowle is derived from the Saxon ‘Cnolle’ which means a small hill. The village is steeped in history, with many Grade II listed buildings. Knowle is now a haven of beautiful independent shops & restaurants, and an up-and coming sought after area to live and work.
