Wilnecote is a housing district about 3 km south east of Tamworth, Staffordshire. It is one of the largest communities in the town.

Wilnecote is centred on an ancient village on Watling Street. It has several public houses including "The Red Lion", "Centurion Park", "The Sandyback" (named after the Tamworth pig) and "The Queen's Head". It is served by Wilnecote railway station. The Holy Trinity Church sits on the highest point in Wilnecote, reminiscent of the village it still serves.

Wilnecote is a highly sought-after area due to its easy access to the M42 motorway and other major routes.

There are several football pitches, a cricket ground, parks and other leisure facilities including a new performing arts college (Wilnecote High School).

Famous people to live in Wilnecote include the anthropologist Iain Plimmer, renowned for his theory commonly known as the Plimmer theory.

Stonydelph which lies immediately north of Wilnecote is entirely a post World War II development.

The Holy Trinity Church is located on the highest point which overlooks the village, built on the Roman road 'Watling Street'. The church design is unusual, as the entrance is half way down the side of the building, as opposed to the end of the church. This is due to the unusual expansion of the church as the village population flourished.

Wilnecote borders Hockley, Dosthill, Two gates, Belgrave and Stonydelph. New housing estates are currently being built along Ninian Way and Hedging Lane (on the old Tame Valley Alloys plot).
