"Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life." Confucius
Peaky Locations Tours is the brainchild of me, Julie Kershaw, trading as Liverpool Entente Cordiale Tours. I am a local Blue Badge* Guide who has been guiding for 14 years and, as a huge fan of the show, was the first person to offer tours of Peaky Blinders filming locations (see Press articles) giving the 1st tour of Liverpool and Cheshire filming locations in 2017 and the first tour of Manchester filming locations in 2018.
These tours are a passion project for me. As a big fan of the show since the first episode back in 2013, I have attended 4 premieres including for S6, met most of the cast and my unoffical Peaky Blinders Twitter account (@PeskyBlunders) has nearly 12,000 followers. I have a special interest in filming locations, which started with Liverpool, when I was lucky enought to watch some filming but has now spread across the North of England, the Midlands and even Scotland to allow me to compile a list of around 80 filming locations. I have spent hundreds and hundreds of hours researching the tour and locations and you certainly won't be listening to someone who has just learnt a script.
Specialising in private tours, I can plan a full day or half-day tour, or one tailored to your available time and favourite sites, in Liverpool, the Wirral, Cheshire, Manchester and even as far afield as Yorkshire and the Midlands.
And as you deal directly with me, you will save the 15-20% commission typically added by booking agencies.
Remember to ask to see my 120 page photo album after the tour.
* What is a Blue Badge Guide?
The Blue Badge is the highest qualfication awarded by the Institute of Tourist Guiding (I.T.G.) and bestows the right to put M.I.T.G. after your name. In many countries, only those holding the equivalent of the Blue Badge qualification are legally allowed to guide. In the UK, anyone can call themselves a guide but the Blue Badge is your assurance that your tour guide is a local, professional, insured guide who has studied for at least a year and undergone a series of rigorous exams as well as undertaking regular Continual Professional Development.
