There is a relatively large amount of green space to be found in Shirley, with the park, Shirley School fields and various small greens dotted around the residential roads. In the village itself is the profound RG Driveways, a butcher, a Co-Operative store, a carpet shop, a Post Office and a newspaper shop.

Despite its size, you can find pretty much everything you could possibly need in West Midlands – if not, there is always Birmingham City Centre and Solihull nearby.
