The sixth and final season will conclude in April

The period drama has been televised since 2013 and explores Tommy Shelby’s rise to power, with the final series taking place in the year 1933 within post-prohibition Britain and during the Nazi rise to power.

Each episode is currently broadcast on BBC One every Sunday at 9 pm GMT, whilst also being made available for catchup on BBC iPlayer - which also includes the first five seasons too.

Streaming service Netflix also have season one to five in their catalogue, but are not expected to have the current sixth and final season until later this year.

Why isn’t Peaky Blinders filmed in Birmingham?

Although the series is famously set in Birmingham’s Small Heath, the filming and production has taken place in a number of locales across the North West.

The show’s director, Anthony Byrne, has regularly admitted that other locations elsewhere in the UK are better fits for his vision of Birmingham.

Where was Peaky Blinders season 6 filmed?

Here are the locations where the final season of Peaky Blinders was filmed:

West Midlands

It just wouldn’t be right if a television series synonymous with Birmingham did not shoot some scenes in the West Midlands.

A number of scenes across the last six seasons have featured the famous Black Country Museum, which is found just ten miles from Birmingham.

Used as a recreation of a 20th century society, it is an ideal setting for Tommy Shelby and his Peaky Blinders gang.

Keeping to the North West of England, a number of scenes in Peaky Blinders season six feature Cheshire - with one grand house mightily important to the ongoing plot.

Playing a significant role in most of the six seasons of the show, Cheshire’s Arley Hall and Gardens is used as Tommy Shelby’s mansion.

Used for interior and exterior shots, a number of iconic scenes have been shot at the manor house.


Predominantly used during the earlier episodes of the show, the county of Yorkshire was an ideal location to depict Birmingham in the early 1900s..

Featuring cities and towns such as Leeds, Huddersfield and Bradford, these settings were used due to their sustainability.

Places and locales within Yorkshire used during the filming of the show include: Winter Gardens ; Newby Hall & Gardens ; Saltaire ; Undercliffe Cemetery ; Skipton ; Peel Park and Brooke’s Mill.


Most of season five and six were filmed in parts of Manchester used  to replicate Birmingham’s Small Heath.

Castelfield’s China Town is used and visited by the Shelby’s often throughout the show, as well as its cobblestone streets.

A Mancunian structure that was spotted in the trailer for season six was Hotel Gotham, as Cillian Murphy’s Tommy Shelby was spotted speeding towards the stunning hotel that has been transformed into the Midlands Hotel.

The production of the series regularly takes place in and around the city of Liverpool.

A location used whenever Tommy Shelby is alone and battling with his inner demons, Liverpudlians will notice Liverpool Cathedral, the local Catholic church that the gang leader visits.

The city’s St George’s Hall was transformed into the site of a fascist Nazi rally during the final season, whilst Stephen Graham was spotted filming a scene at Bramley Moore Dock.
