Keighley and Worth Valley Railway
We don't want to give anything away, but there's a pretty dramatic scene that happens on the railway platform at the end of Season One. For all of the railway scenes of Peaky Blinders, check out the 5-mile heritage railway route at Keighley and Worth Valley. It's worth taking a trip on the heritage train to see the beautiful Haworth countryside while you're there.
Victoria Baths, Manchester
Built in 1906, the Victoria Baths originally housed swimming pools. Today it serves as a wedding venue and also hosts the occasional movie or TV film crew. Head there to see where the horse fair scenes were filmed in Peaky Blinders.
Black Country Living Museum, Dudley
Any true Peaky Blinders fan needs to head to the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley. Set across 26 acres, this open-air museum hosts an amazing array of authentically reproduced buildings and businesses from over 200 years of English history. Check out period-accurate homes, underground mines, and businesses such as blacksmithing, glass-blowing, and more.
While there have been many scenes from Peaky Blinders filmed at the Black Country Living Museum, most notable is perhaps Charlie Strong's scrap metal yard.
Arley Hall, Cheshire
Without spoiling too much for those who haven't seen the show (what are you waiting for?), Tommy Shelby does eventually move up in the business world to the point where he no longer lives in Small Heath. To visit his more high-end home, head to Arley Hall in Cheshire. Many parts of the home are open to visitors, including the gardens, library, and dining room.
Stay in Cheshire for the perfect Peaky Blinders location!
Newby Hall and Gardens, Ripon
When Campbell and Grace meet to exchange information, it may look as though they're meeting in a museum or art gallery. In reality, they're meeting in Newby Hall and Gardens in Ripon, an 18th century house that contains a collection of artwork, furniture, and many antiques.
Port Sunlight, Wirral
Aunt Polly's new home is supposed to be located just outside of Birmingham, but in reality it was filmed in Port Sunlight, Wirral, which is a village outside of Liverpool. Built in the 1800s to house workers from a nearby soap factory, today it's also home to the Port Sunlight Museum where you can learn even more about the village's history.
