Sutton Coldfield



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! 


Eating & drinking

There is nightlife and dining to suit every mood in and around Sutton Coldfield.  The town centre offers a variety of easily accessible pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants and you can also socialise and dine in style in the outlying areas.

If clubs are your scene then Sutton Coldfield won’t disappoint with a selection of venues in and around Lower Parade.

You can be sure of a warm welcome at any one of the pubs in and around Sutton Coldfield, each offering its own ambiance, special ales and cuisine.  If you fancy a relaxing evening away from it all, then try one of the eateries in Sutton Park or venture to the rural edge of Sutton Coldfield.


Sports & leisure

Sutton Park and the green belt areas in and surrounding the town centre give you the space to breathe.  Take summer evening strolls in Sutton Park, go cycling through the country parks - you can even go strawberry picking during the summer weekends.

There are ample swimming and dry sports facilities at Wyndley Leisure Centre, a short walk from the town centre, as well as a feast of cultural, hobby or interest groups on offer throughout the area.  You could even try your hand at sailing at Powells’ Pool or enjoy a round of golf – the Sutton Coldfield circuit is truly excellent!  With four private golf courses set within the Constituency boundary and two additional municipal golf courses, there is something here for the keen golfer, no matter what your handicap.



Sutton Coldfield town centre is located on the A5127, approximately 7 miles north of Birmingham city centre.  It can also be approached from the A38 exit Minworth or Bassetts Pole as well as junction 9 of the M42.

The town centre has its own railway station located on the Birmingham ‘Cross City Line’ and is well served by local bus services.

Each location offers its own beautiful, historic setting and unique leisure experience.  They all make perfect venues for special occasions or weekend retreats.
