Peaky Blinders, the Birmingham based family gangster epic, has took the world by storm. Fans are gripped by the gang who sew razor blades in the peaks of their caps, and their fierce boss Tommy Shelby. The production was filmed extensively across Liverpool, Greater Manchester and the West Midlands and on this new tour professional Blue Badge Guide (and huge fan) Julie Kershaw takes us on a guided tour of key locations – Manchester, Arley Hall, Liverpool and Port Sunlight. We also follow in the characters footsteps by taking a ride on the heritage railway used in filming, visit a Peaky Blinders themed bar, and there is the option to explore the Black Country Living Museum which was used for filming. So down your hatchet, tip your cap, and step into the dark and dangerous world of the Shelby’s. Travellers are encouraged to dress in the finest 1920’s attire.

Suggested itinerary by coach

Sunday

Travel to your hotel via the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway

Chances are any scene involving a train or train station were filmed on and along the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway and today we take the hour round trip on one of the steam trains. The starting station of Keighley was the setting of the confrontation between Arthur Senior and Arthur Junior in Series One.

Spend free time in the pretty village of Haworth or travel to Bradford. The City Hall, Little Germany area and Bradford Police Museum were all used as filming locations in Series 4 of Peaky Blinders and the town has a Peaky Blinders feel to it with the former mills.

Daily trains available from June to August. Please enquire regarding other dates.

Monday

Guided tour of Port Sunlight and Liverpool, Peaky Blinders Bar

Today we enjoy a full day guided tour with Julie, an accredited Blue Badge Guide and expert in all things Peaky Blinders. First we call into Port Sunlight. In 1888, ‘Soap King’ William Hesketh Lever built a ‘model’ village at Port Sunlight to house Lever’s ‘Sunlight Soap’ factory workers. Today, Port Sunlight is home to a museum, gallery and beautiful architecture, with a cottage used as the home of Aunt Polly in Sutton Coldfield.

This afternoon we head to one of Peaky Blinders primary filming locations, Liverpool. We will see at least 10 sites where Peaky Blinders was filmed within the city’s boundaries. Some of the sites may be inaccessible due to roadwork’s, renovations etc.

We end the day with a visit to the Peaky Blinders bar in Liverpool’s Cains Brewery Village where there is a chance to enjoy a tipple. The large bar takes full advantage of its rustic brewery characteristics and is fully 1920s theme including Victorian fixtures, giant copper vats and typical Peaky décor throughout.

Tuesday

Guided tour of Manchester and Arley Hall

Manchester, the world’s first industrial city, was used in the filming of Peaky Blinders. Once again Julie will give us a tour of the city focusing on where Peaky Blinders have filmed including the Town Hall, Northern Quarter, and Victoria Baths; a grade II Edwardian swimming pool which made an appearance as a setting for a horse fair. In the afternoon we travel further afield to Arley Hall, the 19th century estate, and in the series the setting for Tommy’s grand new house. The grounds were also used extensively for filming including the infamous bridge! We then return to the hotel for dinner.

Wednesday

Return home /Black Country Living Museum

Today we return home. Those who wish to have a more extensive tour can travel 1.5 hours from the hotel to the ‘Official Home of the Peaky Blinders’, the Country Living Museum, which has featured in all 4 seasons of the program and is home to Charlie Strong’s scrap metal yard. The ‘living museum’ provides a filming location map for you to explore the site and walk in the footsteps of the Shelby’s. This is an optional extra.


We offer a selection 3* and 4* hotels in the north west which are ideal for this tour.
