Situated just eight miles from the centre of Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield is a large town in its own right. Red Rose Centre and The Mall are the two main shopping centres. Both have been modernised and contain a fascinating combination of multiple and independent shops that sell goods of all types. Restaurants and cafes are plentiful, and the Sutton Coldfield toy shops have plenty of games, puzzles, toys, hobbies and gifts to offer.
An indoor market area known as the Inshops has the Toy Revolution shop specialising in toys from films and TV, and the Entertainer and Games Workshop stores are also situated in the town. Keen model railway enthusiasts have the Hobbyrail shop right on their doorstep, whilst Party Bag Treasures is a perfect one-stop-shop for all kid's party supplies.
