It’s not yet known how many new filming locations will feature in this latest series – but there are places like Tommy Shelby’s house that we’re sure will make a reappearance in this series.

Here are some of the locations that have been used for the BBC series over the years.

Where is the BBC period drama series filmed?

Peaky Blinders is set in central Birmingham, but many scenes were filmed in the north of the UK in Liverpool, Manchester and Cheshire.

The Welsh streets of Liverpool – also known as Watery Lane on the show – are an iconic location as it is where the Shelby family’s first homes were located and where they are now headquartered.

It looks like Liverpool Cathedral could feature in the new series, as one of the promotional shots for series six shows Tommy Shelby in front of the Cathedral’s stained glass window.

Cillian Murphy as Tommy Shelby

St George’s Hall in the town center was also used in the third series. One of the show’s most memorable moments was filmed there when Tommy Shelby’s wife, Grace, was killed.

The Peaky Blinders crew – including some vintage cars – were spotted setting up for filming outside St George’s Hall in March 2021, according to a report by the Liverpool Echo, so it’s possible we can see more scenes featuring this location in series six.

Stephen Graham, who makes an appearance in this latest series, was spotted filming at Bramley Moore Dock in Liverpool in May 2021.

During the second season, filming took place in Port Sunlight in Merseyside, where Aunt Polly’s house was filmed. Away from the city, Formby Beach is another location that has been used by the cast and crew. Many may remember the beach scene between Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy in series four.

Museum of Black Country Life in Dudley

The open-air museum which is just 10 miles from Birmingham was used for many scenes in the Peaky Blinders series.

It is situated on 26 acres of land and has rebuilt shops, homes and industrial areas which represent the history of the Black Country.

One part of the museum that many fans will instantly recognize from the series is the canalside area.

Arley Hall in Cheshire

Arley Hall in Cheshire is no stranger to productions. The hall and gardens have been used for scenes from Netflix’s Stay Close, Coronation Street and the BBC drama Our Zoo – to name a few.

But it’s probably best known for being the home of Tommy Shelby and since series three in 2016, all of the Peakys have descended on the country house to film scenes for the drama.

Peaky Blinders will return to BBC One and BBC iPlayer on Sunday February 27 from 9 p.m.
