'Peaky Tours' and Carl Chinn MBE will take you on a dark journey of discovery. A journey about poverty, crime and gangs which still has a resonance in the 21 st century.

The Real Peaky Blinders Tour

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! 

We are proud to have one of, if not THE most reputable historians of his generation, Prof. Carl Chinn MBE in charge of our tours.
