4*Hotel with leisure facilities!

One of TV’s most popular current series, this tour takes you to some of the key filming locations for Peaky Blinders. The Black Country Living Museum was used to recreate the scrap metal yard of Charlie Strong and also doubles for the location where Thomas Shelby, played by Cillian Murphy, stores his illicit goods and uses the canals to send them off to London and abroad.

Port Sunlight was used as the location for Aunt Polly’s Sutton Coldfield house and any time you see a scene involving a train or a train station in Peaky Blinders, chances are it was filmed along the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway. The impressive 19th century estate of Arley Hall stands in for the grand new digs of Tommy. This is a tour guaranteed to delight any fan!

Black Country Museum (admission included)

The story of the Black Country is distinctive because of the scale, drama, intensity and multiplicity of the industrial might that was unleashed. It first emerged in the 1830s, creating the first industrial landscape anywhere in the world. It is this that the Black Country Museum rejoices in sharing with you. This is twenty six acres worth exploring! Amazing as it may seem, this is now a ‘place’ – a real and lively place, where once there was nothing and nobody. With a village and charismatic residents to chat with, trams to ride, games to play, things being made and stories to hear. But above all this is about the people - their triumphs to admire and troubles to be thankful that are not ours. A catalyst for thinking and reflection about our own lives.

Port Sunlight (admission included) & Liverpool for tour of filming locations

We visit the picturesque and unique village of Port Sunlight on the Wirral which was built by William Hesketh Lever as an idyllic model village for his “Sunlight Soap” workers. This is perhaps the best kept secret in the region and with its distinctive styles created by 26 different architects to design the houses, it is truly a hidden gem! There is even a Beatles link here as it was the very first place that Ringo Star played with the Beatles in 1962. Your fun tour guide will bring the whole village to life and you will have free time to visit the Lady Lever Art Gallery and to buy refreshments.

Arley Hall (admission included)

Arley Hall & Gardens is one of the most interesting and attractive stately homes in the North West. The Gardens, amongst the finest in Britain, are outstanding for their vitality, variety and historical interest and are particularly celebrated for the magnificent double herbaceous border. The Hall is an impressive example of a Victorian country house built in the Elizabethan style. Arley Hall is one of the most interesting and attractive stately homes in the North West. The elaborate ceilings & oak panelling, impressive fireplaces, intricate stained glass and beautiful contents are features which make Arley Hall so special. The present Hall stands on the same site as the first Hall built by the family 1469. The Hall standing was built between 1832 and 1845 by Rowland Egerton-Warburton to the design of George Latham, a Nantwich architect.
