This experience is an absolute must for Peaky Blinders fans and well worth doing even if you do not know anything about the TV series and just want to see and hear a bit of the hidden history of our second city.
From start to finish (3 and a half hours) I was entertained by in-depth knowledge shared in a witty, touching and personal way. Carl is the font of all knowledge and Stu and Francis provide excellent back-up. The tour also has the odd unexpected event!
The Crown gives a real glimpse of traditional pubs. The area of Deritend was unknown to me but now I would love to go back and explore the historical features that remain which Carl revealed to us.
The age range was from 20 to 70 I would estimate, and each and everyone of us seemed enthralled despite the heat of the June evening.
I cannot wait to book the Jewellry Quarter walk and experience such an interesting evening once again.
