About this Event

Over the last few years, Hollywood legends Tom Cruise and Steven Spielberg have chosen Birmingham to film parts of their latest blockbusters with 'Ready Player One' and 'Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning’. The main reason is that some areas of Birmingham can double up for many places including, America and London, and further afield with Grand Central doubling up for Abu Dhabi airport for Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One.


Join the Locationist - Birmingham, for this brand new tour, as you discover these epic filming locations where some scenes for films & television shows have been filmed including, 'Ready Player One', 'Line of Duty [season 1], 'Citadel' 'D.I Ray', the forthcoming 'Joan' starring Game of Thrones Sophie Turner; and 'Mission Impossible 7' and many more.Lee Perkins, the lead tour presenter & owner - who is a former BBC & ITV tour guide, Cbbc event host & live events presenter of over 10 years, will deliver an informative, fun and memorable tour. 'with a genuine interest in the process of filmmaking & getting a real buzz when I have found filming locations myself on my travels around the world; I believe I can deliver an engaging & tour for fellow film fans with my vast experience in this specialist tourism arena. The tour will be packed full of ‘Easter Eggs’ and other pop culture references that film enthusiasts will LOVE! & geekout over! -Lee
Latest Review:'Lee is very knowledgeable about many aspects of the film and TV industry, from special effects and the filming process, to being in several TV shows himself! He has a background in TV as a tour guide for many well known programmes and he communicates this with enthusiasm and great humour. Birmingham needs a walking tour like this - something a little different but with plenty of fascinating information. Lee is more than happy to take questions throughout the tour, and the whole 2.5 hours just flew by. There are quizzes along the way, the opportunity to pay a quick comfort visit if needed, and even a prize at the end of the walk. We covered many historical buildings and Lee carries screen grabs from many films and TV shows with him to further illustrate the locations used and exactly where you are standing in Birmingham when he relates the many anecdotes and stories behind the shooting of such epics. It feels a very personal tour, in the best possible way, and Lee gives his all - even following up afterwards with a fact-packed email containing links and more details about some of the places visited during the day. He deserves his own Oscar - for direction, for being a star, for technical content - but most of all, for being a great guy! Lee - you put so much in for everyone's enjoyment, entertainment and education!' Gillian. Taken from a TripAdvisor 5 star review.
'A show in itself!Well this was such a great day. I had no idea Birmingham was used for so many film locations. The locationist is an absolute delight and should be a star of a show himself. Seriously! He is knowledgable, enthusiastic and his delivery was brilliant. He is also extremely funny. I loved every second of it and so did my friend. Thank you so much. Look forward to seeing you again. Christine[taken from a 5 star TripAdvisor review]
