Over the last few years, Hollywood legends Tom Cruise and Steven Spielberg have chosen Birmingham to film parts of their latest blockbusters with 'Ready Player One' and 'Mission Impossible 7'. The main reason is that some areas of Birmingham can double up for many places including, America and London, and further afield with Grand Central doubling up for Abu Dhabi airport for Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One.

Join the Locationist - Birmingham, for this brand new tour, as you discover these epic filming locations where some scenes for films & television shows have been filmed including, 'Ready Player One', 'Line of Duty [season 1], 'Citadel' 'D.I Ray', and 'Mission Impossible 7' and many more.

Lee Perkins, the lead tour presenter & director - who is a former BBC & ITV tour guide, tours operations manager, & live events presenter of over 10 years, will deliver an informative, and memorable tour. 'with a genuine interest in the process of filmmaking & getting a real buzz when I have found filming locations myself on my travels around the world; I believe I can deliver an engaging & tour for fellow film fans with my vast experience in this specialist tourism arena. The tour will be packed full of ‘Easter Eggs’ and other pop culture references that film enthusiasts will LOVE!' -Lee

Latest Review:

'I have just returned from a tour of TV and Film locations in Birmingham with Lee. What a wealth of knowledge this man has. From Citadel, Mission Impossible , D I Ray, Ready Player One, & Kingsman name just a few. We heard stories about the filming of Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part 1 with Tom Cruise, and learned a lot about the technical side of filming in our narrow streets in Birmingham. He was able to show us how buildings are used and clever techniques to disguise buildings and let you think it was being filmed anywhere in the world. We also stopped by the Queens Arms Pub on Newhall Street where Line of Duty [series 1] was filmed, & Lee also includes a quiz on your knowledge of films which is fun. This tour is a must for any film fans. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in films and TV shows especially if you are curious about filming in and around Birmingham' Mary - Solihull
