Where to hold it

The Garrison, obviously. This is the pub in the series. The Garrison is to Peaky’s what the Rovers is to Corrie.

The Garrison Pub is an ornate cathedral built to combat the gloom of poverty, located in Garrison Lane. During the Series 1, the landlord of the pub is Harry Fenton. In the Series 2, the pub is destroyed and has to be rebuilt. Thomas Shelby buys the pub from Harry and Arthur Shelby Jr. becomes the owner, though Harry still works there.

With a few props and pieces from vintage shops - or carboots sales - it is easy to recreate its ambience.

What to wear: For him

Peaky Blinders are known for their sharp suits, crisp shirts and, of course, their trademark caps. Steven Knight launched his own clothing company called Garrison Tailors in 2016 to enable people to emulate the look of the what he calls “the Peaky boys.”.

Tweed suit, crisp white shirt, tie, waist coast, leather boots, and the eight-panel caps.

A wool overcoat and classic lace-up work boots are a must for any gangster look.

A pocket watch is the ultimate accessory. Umbrella optional.

Stockists include: Selfridges, Ted Baker and All Saints.

You can also rummage vintage clothes shops, high street stores and car boots

For her

When it comes to the leading ladies in Peaky Blinders, Aunt Polly, May Carleton and Ada Shelby certainly know how to dress the part.

Fashion for women is all about getting loose. Drop waist, asash or belt around the low waist or hip and a skirt that hangs anywhere from ankle on up to the knee but never above. Cloche hats, seamed stockings, a purse, gloves and maybe jewellery. Shoes T-straps, single or double strap Mary Janes, and walking Oxfords.

Elegant and decadent with beaded flapper dresses or long evening gowns. Accessories include the head band, stoles, boas, bracelets and necklaces.
