Capturing the world of Tommy Shelby and his racketeering gang in over 20 locations.

‘Peaky Blinders’ is set in the heartland of Britain’s industrial revolution, the West Midlands. But to perfectly capture the world of Tommy Shelby and his gang, the producers have used locations right across Britain. This illustrated guide reveals over 20 locations, along with episode references, so viewers can check out exactly which stations, mills, factories and grand house were featured on screen. Locations include:

  • The Black Country Living Museum Situated on the canal in Dudley and open all year round to the public, this museum shows West Midlands’ industrial heritage.
  • Manchester’s impressive 1877 town hall Used when Sam Neill’s character meets Churchill; while the city’s Grade II-listed Edwardian swimming pool, the Victoria Baths, was mocked up for a horse fair.
  • Port Sunlight A model industrial village on the Wirral that has been preserved thanks to its single ownership and strict leaseholds, which sets the backdrop for Aunt Polly’s Sutton Coldfield House.
  • Keighley & Worth Valley Railway in Yorkshire, which once served mills and villages in the Worth valley is used as one of the locations for the Blinder’s many train station scenes.
