Peaky Blinders & Black Country Museum

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

Port Sunlight, which was built by William Hesketh Lever as an idyllic model village for his “Sunlight Soap” workers was used as the location for Aunt Polly’s Sutton Coldfield house. 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!


Full of history, culture and friendly people, Liverpool is the ideal destination to discover and enjoy. A World Heritage site with a wonderful collection of museums, galleries, shopping and dining, there really is something for everyone in this fantastic city. The coach will take you to the historic Albert Dock complex with a great range of visitor attractions including the iconic ‘Beatles Story’. You can also take a ferry across the Mersey or visit the historic city centre. Liverpool is there for you to enjoy as you want it.

Arley Hall & Gardens

Arley Hall & Gardens is a place of enormous character, charm and lays claim to a herbaceous border within its gardens – the first of its kind in Europe. The 19th century estate, open to the public since the 1960s, stands in for the grand new digs of Tommy.
