Liverpool Peaky Blinders Bus Tour for Two
Hop on board the Peaky Blinders express to see the sights and sounds of 20th century Birmingham… except you're in Liverpool. Thanks to its well-preserved Victorian architecture, much of Peaky Blinders was actually filmed in the north west rather than the midlands. So, if you’re interested in seeing where Cillian Murphy and Helen McCrory sat and schemed, then this bus tour is for you.
On the four-hour coach tour, you’ll explore nine filming locations from the drama, including Polly’s house, Garrison Lane and much more. Plus, a smartly-dressed tour guide will entertain you with facts and behind-the-scenes stories from the set.

Peaky Blinders Day Tour for Two with Cream Tea at Tommy's Church
If a coach tour isn’t quite enough to tempt you, then how about a coach tour with scones at the end?
After a day of exploring film locations, and enjoying the vibrant landmarks of Liverpool, settle down for a quiet afternoon tea in Cheshire complete with sandwiches and homemade cakes. The cream tea will be served in the café beside the church where Tommy Shelby married Grace, although hopefully your day will end a bit better.
