Sutton Coldfield, close to Sutton Park, combines historic architecture with a truly modern shopping experience.
A former borough town, Sutton Coldfield is the largest place to shop and relax within Birmingham outside of the city centre. Enjoy the variety Sutton Coldfield has to offer and soak up the atmosphere at one of the weekend markets.
There are three distinct shopping environments provided by the Red Rose Centre, The Mall and New Hall Walk, which brings ‘out of town’ shops into the heart of Sutton Coldfield. With a broad range of High Street names located on The Parade there is something for just about everyone!
