Sutton Coldfield Area Guide
The town lies about 7 miles northeast of Birmingham city centre and borders Little Aston, North Warwickshire, Lichfield, Erdington and South Staffordshire. In 1528 King Henry VIII granted Sutton Coldfield a Charter of Incorporation, allowing the town to become a Royal Town. Since then, The Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield as been home to some of the country’s most illustrious personalities, and some of the UK’s most regal properties. Sprawling estates are found throughout Sutton, particularly on the famously exclusive Four Oaks Estate, and on Little Aston’s renowned Roman Road. As well as luxury homes, Sutton also offers everything practical that residents could require to enjoy life to the fullest.
Sutton Park is the UK’s 8th biggest according to Ordnance Survey. When you consider that the Park is situated in an entirely urban area, whereas other parks on the OS list are set in vast expanses of countryside, that gives you an idea of Sutton Park’s sheer scale. Just a short walk through a few of Sutton Park’s 8.4 km² gives you a wonderfully tranquil pause from the bustling town centre. While you’re there, why not eat in one of the Park’s great restaurants or play a round or two of golf on its 18-hole course? The possibilities are endless.
On leaving the park, a short drive takes you directly to Wyndley Leisure Centre’s fully equipped gym and swimming pool. If you feel like you’ve had quite enough exercise for the day, then The Gracechurch Shopping Centre in Sutton’s town centre offers a cornucopia of big-brand retailers, local gems, wonderful cafés and restaurants you’ll wish you’d discovered earlier. The Empire Cinema screens everything from live opera from the Royal Opera House to the very latest Hollywood blockbusters every single day. If you want to pop into Birmingham or travel further afield, Sutton Coldfield’s train station or any one of the series of bus routes that frequent the town will get you into the city centre in less than half an hour.
Sutton Coldfield is a haven of luxury, far enough away from the city centre to give you some much needed peace and calm, but close enough to allow you to work, shop or just sightsee in the city centre as conveniently as possible.
Linked by regular services from Sutton Coldfield railway station on the Cross-City Line to the centre of Birmingham, Sutton is an easy commute for people who work in Birmingham.
