Peaky Tours will take you on a dark journey of discovery. A journey about poverty, crime and gangs which still has a resonance in the 21st century.
This tour will have Professor Carl Chinn take you on a guided history tour of the sites and scenes of some of the Peaky Blinders most notorious places.
Starting at The Old Crown and taking in the Rainbow Pub where the term "Peaky Blinder" was first penned, you will see and hear with your own eyes and ears how the gang became the most feared gang in the whole of England.

Crime-ridden streets, gangland warfare, poverty, desperation and murder. Are we talking about New York or Chicago in the 1920s?
No, we're talking about the dark past of Birmingham in the 1880s and early 1900s when gangs roamed the streets and ruled not with an iron fist, but supposedly with razor blades sewn into their caps!
