Knowle is a beautiful village to visit for artisan food, boutiques, gift shops and specialist businesses. Knowle dates back to the 13th century and has a number of attractive listed buildings, a beautiful park, Knowle Locks on the Grand Union canal and rolling countryside. We’re in the borough of Solihull, just a few minutes down the road from Solihull Town Centre.


As a village we look forward to events through the year including Knowle Fun Run, Fireworks Evening, Knowle Christmas Light Switch On and Knowle and Dorridge Lions Festive Walk. We share news of community events on our social media pages. Follow @visitknowle on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date.
