It was announced yesterday that the biggest annual free-to-spectate sporting event will finish its 182 kilometre stage in Tatton Park, Knutsford. Due to take place in September this year, this family event attracts spectators in their thousands with each stage expected to attract 180,000 people. Cheshire East will host Stage Three of the Tour on Tuesday 6th September, with the entire event starting in Glasgow and eventually finishing in London.

It is recognised that this important sporting event will be advantageous to the local economy due to the high media profile of the event and the sheer numbers that the event will attract to our historic town. Analysis has shown that approximately 80% of spectators are from outside of the local area, and that approximately 15% of visitors stay overnight. The net additional economic impact from non local spectators averages between £3M – £5M per stage.

Added to this, Knutsford with its narrow, historic streets would greatly benefit from sustainable cycling initiatives, to further the work that organisations such as CycleKnutsford have already put in, to get Knutsfordians on their bikes! It is hoped that the Tour will also encourage cycle tourism and cycle networks to come to the town. We’re lucky to have a cycling specialist right here in town at Bikes n Gear, so get down there for all of your cycling paraphernalia.

Tour of Britain 2016We’re waiting with fingers crossed to hear which cyclists will compete and that two weeks after winning the Gold in Rio, we’ll be able to see Sir Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish right here, on the streets of Knutsford two weeks later 😉

The Knutsford and Tatton Park finish will see the race come through the town twice during the day (see map link below).

Race director Mick Bennett, said: “Stage Three will present spectators with the chance to see the Tour of Britain on multiple occasions, not least of which at the finish in Tatton Park where we will have a passage of the line mid-afternoon, making it one of the best spectating locations on this year’s route. The stage combines the gently rolling roads of the Cheshire Plain with some key climbs such as the Cat and Fiddle in Cheshire’s Peak District”.

This is fantastic news for the town, the local businesses, sports and cycling fans but mostly for the families that will get to see this incredibly popular event in their own town, Knutsford!

Knutsford Hosts Stage 3 of Tour Of Britain Cycling Race

A bid by Cheshire East Council to host Stage 3 of the Tour of Britain has been successful and Knutsford will play host to the stage on Tuesday September 6th. Tattoo Park was the choice of both Cheshire East and the race organisers: SweetSpot Group, to host the finish line which will add to the excitement for residents and visitors. Stage 3 will begin in Congleton and for the very first time in the race's history will pass through Knutsford twice.

The Tour of Britain is the biggest and most professional bike race in the country with 20 teams taking part from 10 different countries. 7 of the teams are British, including Sir Bradley Wiggins team who will feature just two weeks after their appearance at the Rio Olympics.

Live and recorded television coverage by ITV4 and Eurosport will attract an anticipated 1.5 million viewers and each stage is expected to attract 180,000 spectators which will be an enormous boost for the local economy.

There will be many opportunities to capitalise on the opportunity the event presents for local schools, businesses and interest groups, no less a chance to see some of the UK's favourite athletes in action right on our doorstep.

Let’s start with shoes! You’ll find some absolute beauties at Zapatos on Regent Street. The store itself takes on the air of a Milanese boutique, all clean lines, glass shelves and rows of exquisite shoes. Sandra stocks high-fashion designers such as Capollini, Calpierre and Rupert Sanderson but also the youthful, funkier brands like Geox and Ash. With Italian leather handbags, gloves and other accessories, Zapatos is simply a gorgeous shopping experience. Have a look in Mozimo on King Street, especially if you’re looking for shoes for holidays or every-day wear. They stock an excellent range of high-quality brands such as Fit-Flops, Gabor and Birkenstocks. They also sell beautiful leather handbags by Peter Keiser. If you love bright colours, Mozimo is the store for you! Glamorous on King Street, has a great range of unique and often bejewelled, ballet pumps and sandals. One gets the Ibiza feeling when passing Glamorous‘ window, I frequently get whip-lash. Both The Wedding Gallery  and the Wedding Boutique, have beautiful shoes, for both brides and bridesmaids.

On to clothes… The boutiques of Knutsford supply a whole range of leading brands for all types of budget, here’s a taster: Willow on Knutsford’s King Street has three floors of beautiful clothes and accessories. The shop itself oozes cool sophistication but also manages to make one feel welcome and relaxed. Janice and Michelle stock brands such as Farhi, by Nicole Farhi, Isabel de Pedro, Paul by Paul Smith, Armani Jeans, Marella and Part Two. The accessories are to die for. Beautiful necklaces, ring and bracelets and Willow’s bags range from stunning clutches to oversized slouchy leather bags, there’s so much choice.

Attending a wedding this Summer? Then pop into Glamorous on King Street, as they have great Summer dresses of varying hemlines from designers like Lipsy and Rare; they’ve nailed the Ibiza, lux-hippy look with a range of maxi dresses, matching shrugs and wraps and don’t forget those ballet pumps …. Speaking of weddings, Boutique D’Or, also on King Street, specialises in sophisticated occasion-wear, an ideal stop for the Mother-of-the-Bride or anyone feeling an elegant rather than ‘street’ feel, is a better fit. Sally, who is friendly and ultra-intuitive, stocks the most beautiful scarves and accessories, with designer labels such as Luisa Cerano, Basler, Passigati and Erfo, one’s seasonal wardrobe can be organised in one stop.

Fall Woman on King Street is the perfect stop for finding unique and individual pieces. Fall’s window frequently features a statement dress, usually an Italian design, which one will find irresistible! Fall Woman stocks Guido Lombardi, Annette Gortz, Oska, Bitte Rai Rand and Vilagallo, to name but a few.

One of the longest standing clothes retailers in Knutsford is Broadbents. They feature Betty Barclay, Gerry Weber and Capri, but also sell an amazing array of beautiful accessories, and high quality leather bags.

With really helpful and friendly staff who give great style advice, Riva is your destination for menswear in Knutsford.  I recently purchased two shirts as gifts (sans husband) in Riva, armed with just a description and no measurements, John and Gary were  so friendly and patient.  The shirts fitted perfectly equalling very happy husband!  Stocking brands such as Hugo Boss, Gant, Lyle & Scott, Eton, and Roy Robson and Hugo Boss accessories, Riva is a favourite for the men (and women) of Knutsford and beyond.

Although Knutsford is known for it’s independent boutiques, many of the leading retail stores have found homes here too. In Knutsford you will find, Laura Ashley, Barbour, a Jaeger Outlet, Jojo Maman Bebe, Rohan, Golfino and Fatface.

The Belle Epoque wedding venue remains a culinary and bridal beacon of the north west.

With 41 years under its belt, times have certainly changed, but the integrity and dedication to the Belle Epoque experience has not. In fact, the restaurant and hotel continue to evolve, always looking at ways to ensure each and every person who passes through these historic doors, has a truly individual and memorable experience.

Behind walls that have witnessed over four decades of change in the town, the acclaimed restaurant known far and wide for its award-winning cuisine, continues to champion the very best of locally sourced ingredients. What’s more, is that the restaurant has managed to grasp the seemingly impossible balance of traditional hearty food, with just the right amount of modern French influence.

Now in to second and third generation weddings, families have shared their lives with The Belle Epoque, becoming part of a very special family. Yet despite thousands of couples choosing to tie the knot inside this Cheshire institution, every wedding remains unique and individual.

With 164 seasons under its belt, each season at The Belle Epoque sees a dramatic and atmospheric change. During warmer months, the Mediterranean roof garden takes guests on a journey of decadence, and when the weather gets colder, the welcome gets warmer, with a roaring fire and hearty cuisine.

Whether here for a lavish wedding or a romantic meal, The Belle Epoque will leave a lasting impression, and like many others that came before you, you may just find yourself back again very soon…

We look forward to welcoming you…

For some of us living in a pleasant, market town like Knutsford, it can be easy to forget how difficult life can be for others living in less fortunate circumstances.  Having said that, Knutsford is a big-hearted town where there are many opportunities for residents to donate to a charity or cause of their choosing. This is particularly the case at Christmas.
