About
Our slogging gang is looking for new recruits, so join Edward Shelby, a distant cousin of the real-life Birmingham gang, as he shows you around the city and teaches you the ropes of being a gang member in the late 19th century. Find out what it was like to walk in the streets the slogging gangs ruled at night and explore parts of the city not covered on our daytime tour. How did the gangs use the canals? How did alcohol add to the gang problem. What did the city do to try to control it? On this tour, you will discover the answers and experience five unique drinking establishments, from real ale pubs to gin palaces and cocktail bars. Participate in some fun activities, such as drinking games and a pub quiz, while learning about the impact of gangs and alcohol on the city. Our night tour is perfect for hen and stag nights, birthdays, team-building events, or a great way to meet new people.

    Great fun tour with FOOD
    On a pretty grey evening in Birmingham, we didnt really know what to expect but as soon as we found Edward the energy of the day changed! His character was perfect for the part and we were entertained from start to finish. Enjoyed learning more about the gangs as well as really awesome, slightly unusual but totally delicious food choices! Do it!

    Treat of a walking tour in the heart of Birmingham
    Can confirm this rightly belongs to top 10 things to do in Birmingham. Guide was 10 out of 10 - very friendly, communicative and well suited to enlighten us not only about history of the gangs, but also about Birmingham and being a brummie. Fantastic tour.

    Great activity whilst visiting
    This was fun! It was a lovely walk around Birmingham with stops that provided information about the history of the city. We only had one day to visit and I felt this gave showed us a bit of the city. The tour guide was enthusiastic and fun. He answered lots of question throughout the tour. I would do this again in another city.

    Less walking more talking.
    Lots and lots of walking and commentaries quite far apart. Better if there was less walking and more talking. Should be warning on tour about amount of tour. OK for guide as he was young with long legs.

    Great experience. Enthusiastic guide.
    I was in a small group of only four which provided great contact with our guide and information relevant to us about Thomas Shelby. Worth doing if you're in Birmingham.

Camaraderie was the best. Its that we were all linked with the appreciation for the show and the history of the Peaky Blinders. Edward fuelled that very skillfully but I also lucked out as the other patrons were awesome, special shout out to Malcolm and Jenny and I promise I will come again and visit Dudley.

I join tour with Edward Shelby. He talks about old gangs in Birmingham. It is good tour but sometimes hard to understand because my English is not perfect.

We see many places in city and Edward tells stories. He is friendly and knows much about history. The tour is long walk but very interesting.

I think this tour is good for learn about Birmingham. If you like history, you will like this tour.

So glad you enjoyed the tour. Our guide is always happy to repeat things when walking between stops as I know it can be a problem if English is not your first language. Also if you let us know before the tour we can also provide additional written notes in your chosen language.

We had a lovely evening with Edward, getting to see Birmingham, learn about the history of the city, and trying some truly excellent bars about town. It was just my father and I on the tour that evening, which made it feel like we were spending time with an old friend. Edward was very kind, easy to talk to, and a lot of fun!! A wonderful way to spend an evening in Birmingham!

We really loved showing you the city and are glad you enjoyed the tour. We love the small tours too because it really allows us to get to know our guests and customise the tours to their needs. We do offer private tours if you are ever in the city again with friends. It can make a great birthday activity. Maybe you could even try our Warwick tour in the New Year!

I don’t watch much TV but talk about this series always seem to come up when I was out socialising.
Anyway upon visiting Birmingham to attend a conference I found myself with a few hours to spare.
Did a search for local things to do late afternoon and was surprised to find anything.
Anyway Peaky Blinders tour came up so decided to book. 6pm start.
Wa s not disappointed . Really enjoyed this 2 hour tour.
Maybe now I will bye the Box Set.
Highly recommended.

Thank you so much for such a lovely review. We are hoping to expand soon to offer tours seven days a week because we have had many people say the same thing, that when they finish work it is hard to find things to do at that time especially in January and February. Next time you are in the city we would love to see you on one of our other tours. We do offer private tours if you need a time not already offered.

So glad you enjoyed the tour. It was probably the wettest tour we have ever done so so glad it did not dampen your enjoyment. We look forward to seeing you on the food tour. Did you know we also do a nighttime pub tour and that we will be starting tours in Warwick late spring?

So glad you enjoyed the tour. One of Edward's favourite aspects of being a tour guide is the wide range of people he gets to meet so the interaction is as nice for us as you say it is for you. Thanks for being such a nice group to show around the city.
