What is the name of the pub that is a central point of the British TV drama "Peaky Blinders"?
"Peaky Blinders" is a British period crime drama television series created by Steven Knight. Set in Birmingham, England, the series follows the exploits of the Shelby crime family in the direct aftermath of the First World War. The fictional family is loosely based on a real urban youth gang of the same name, who were active in the city from the 1890s to the early 20th century.
During the first series, The Garrison was a central point in the Peaky Blinders story, the scene of much mayhem, deal brokering and general plot thickening! It provided the location for the heart and soul of the early days of the TV series and has featured in all four series.
It is believed The Garrison Tavern in Small Heath was frequented by the Peaky Blinders gang at the turn of the 20th century and was a favourite drinking location of the gang. The real The Garrison is located on Garrison Lane in the Small Heath area of Birmingham, close to the St Andrews football stadium. Before filming for Peaky Blinders started in 2013, Cillian Murphy (played the part of Thomas "Tommy" Shelby, the leader of the Peaky Blinders gang) was taken there by the production crew so he could get a feel for the true Peaky Blinders stomping ground and help perfect his accent.
