It was an awesome tour - I find some walking tours not that entertaining, but this was spot on. I'm a huge Marvel/superhero fan so I was in my element with The Captain America/Morbius sections of the tour. The Peaky Blinders areas were class too. Lee is a great guide, a lovely guy- really brought everything to life. I'm going to rewatch things I visited with The Locationist - for sure. Thanks for an amazing afternoon.' Ben - Bolton

I have just returned from a tour of TV and Film locations in Birmingham with the locationist's - Lee. What a wealth of knowledge this man has. From Citadel, Mission Impossible , D I Ray, Ready Player One, & Kingsman to name just a few. We heard stories about the filming of Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part 1 with Tom Cruise, and learned a lot about the technical side of filming in our narrow streets in Birmingham. He was able to show us how buildings are used and clever techniques to disguise buildings and let you think it was being filmed anywhere in the world. We also visited the Queens Arms Pub on Newhall Street where Line of Duty [series 1] was filmed. Lee also includes a quiz on your knowledge of films which is fun. This tour is a must for any film fans. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in films and TV shows especially if you are curious about filming in and around Birmingham' Mary - Solihull

Our Manchester tour with The Locationist was truly fab. A very interesting and insightful tour of Mcr locations. Lee was full of superb info and great stories of his time at Granada and BBC, a really interesting guide. My personal faves were the Pink Palace entrance from It's A Sin & Peaky Blinders locations. A wonderful and awesome way to see how parts of Manchester are used for film and TV. Would definitely recommend this tour. Jo -Manchester
