Caps on heads for a Blue Badge tour of locations that feature in the hit TV series Peaky Blinders.
Set in 1920s Birmingham, many scenes in the BAFTA award-winning drama were filmed in Liverpool and surrounding areas.
No less than Fifteen Liverpool settings have stood in for locations as diverse as London’s Eden Club, a Detroit Hotel and the Margate shoot-out between Tommy and Alfie.
Birmingham’s Watery Lane – where the Shelby brothers grew up – and Garrison Lane home of the eponymous pub, were also filmed in Liverpool.
Aunt Polly’s house in Peaky Blinders is in Sutton Coldfield, outside Birmingham. On our tour we will take you to the actual house used for filming in a model village in Liverpool. Port Sunlight, was built in the late 1800s as living quarters for workers at the nearby Sunlight Soap factory.
A Liverpool City Region or North-West Blue Badge Guide will join you on your coach or chauffeur-driven vehicle to visit these iconic locations.
The Black Country Living Museum in the Midlands has been used in every series. It is instantly recognisable as Charlie Strong’s scrap metal yard, as well as the location of Ada and Freddie’s canal-side assignations.
Set in 26-acres, the museum showcases 200 years of history and has something for all the family.
Of course, the Midlands, and especially Birmingham, was the real home of the Peaky Blinders gang and you can follow in their footsteps – walking through the areas where they brought terror in the 1890s. One of our Heart of England guides will show you the locations and introduce you to the “Brummy” culture and dialect that is at the heart of the TV series.
