Where will the Peaky Blinders Movie be Filmed? We discuss the highly anticipated film and its filming locations. 

Peaky Blinders has become a TV sensation since it first aired in 2013. Yes, I fact-checked that this show has been around for a decade, and that was as surprising to me as it was to you.

The show would air on the BBC, and they would cut a deal with Netflix for the distribution rights so that they could show the series on their platform worldwide. The show was created by Stephen Knight and follows the notorious misadventures of a violent and ruthless crime gang in Birmingham after the end of the First World War.

Although the gang in the show is fictitious, the show is very loosely based on a real gang called The Peaky Blinders, who roamed the city from the 1800s to around about 1910.

The show would have a terrific ensemble cast, with Cillian Murphy playing Tommy Shelby and Joe Cole as John Shelby. Other notable cast members include Tom Harper, Charlotte Riley, Paddy Considine, and Anya Taylor Joy.

The show has just concluded a sixth season, and fans were eagerly awaiting the seventh, then fate would intervene.

The Covid pandemic would see the show put on hiatus, and its creator Stephen Knight would say that season six would be it’s last; however, he would also tease fans by saying that the story would continue in another form.

The news would eventually break off the seventh season, being replaced with a feature-length movie. This article will take a look at where the production will be filmed and possibly offer up some more facts for fans, so make sure you read to the end.

Where will the Peaky Blinders Movie be Filmed – a breakdown of filming locations


As the show was set in and around Birmingham, and the production company has been filming there from the start, it makes sense that the film version of the TV series will be filmed there too.

The show has extensively used locations around Birmingham and The Midlands in the central region of the UK, so they will film where they know they can create the correct atmosphere for fans.

The show would also film in certain spots, and they may return there for the film, so here are a few that might interest you.

Black Country Living Museum, West Midlands, UK

Fans of all six series of the show will instantly recognize Charlie Strong’s scrap metal yard, the Blacksmith’s building, Canal Street Bridge, St. James’s School, and the Workers’ Institute, all filmed in Dudley at the spectacular open-air museum that covers two hundred years of social history. Visitors are welcome to tour this location.

Port Sunlight, The Wirral, Liverpool, UK

Visitors are also welcome to visit this location; the house used for Aunt Polly’s home. Situated in the picturesque village of Port Sunlight, it was built in the late 1800s and used to house the workers at a nearby factory.

Arley Hall, Cheshire, UK

Arley Hall was used as the residence for Tommy Shelby and will be well known by fans who will have witnessed the climatic showdown with Alfie Solomon’s here and the eventual arrest of the Shelby family. If you visit the hall and gardens of Cheshire, you can actually visit the esteemed library that doubles as Tommy Shelby’s study.

Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, West Yorkshire, UK

If there are any railway scenes to be filmed, the crew will no doubt head to where the previous action was shot for the show.

This heritage location can be found in the heart of Haworth village near Bradford and was used for the scene in season one where Inspector Campbell is shot in the leg.

We imagine these locations will be used in filming for the long-awaited conclusion to the Peaky Blinders story.
