A beautiful village with a rich history

Close to Solihull and a stones throw from rolling fields and the Grand Union Canal, our historic centre is full of attractive buildings.


Support Local

Our village is packed with strong independent businesses. Thank you for supporting Knowle’s businesses.


Welcome to Visit Knowle

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

Join today

The Visit Knowle membership scheme has been developed by local businesses with the aim of making Knowle a more vibrant, attractive and successful place for all involved.

Whilst we already represent a number of key interests in the town and are a fully independent, business-led company, increasing membership is vital to us. It enables us to represent your views as effectively as possible. We need as many businesses as possible to join and contribute to the plan of improvements. The income from membership subscriptions will be used on tangible and high-impact projects that drive footfall to Knowle and increase your customer base.

Business Membership

Direct benefits to your business from joining Visit Knowle include:

  • Every penny of membership income being spent on projects to boost footfall
  • The development of a strong and independent local business group
  • Monthly updates on specific local and regional issues
  • Access to briefings on key matters and the ability to lobby for further change
  • A package of improvements for the village centre which you help to identify
Additionally, benefits for your business include:
  • Complimentary branding photography 
  • Business Spotlight features on social media
  • Full marketing benefits of Visit Knowle campaigns and events such as the Late Night Shopping Night
  • Social media support
  • Business listing in our Members Directory
  • Free or reduced rates for any training sessions
  • Free access to any Visit Knowle networking events
The subscription fee replaces the previous contribution to Christmas late night shopping event.

The annual cost of joining Visit Knowle is £90 (inc VAT) per year and we therefore hope that you will be able to join us in driving significant improvements to business in Knowle.

Visit Knowle welcomes Community Groups as members, with the same status and benefits as business members.
