Thanks to a new launch from Tile Giant you can get the Peaky Blinders look in your own home.
The new collection featuring 50 new tiles varying in six different sizes and styles, all inspired by Victoria Baths.
Victoria Baths featured as a backdrop in Peaky Blinders as well as fellow Manchester-based series Cold Feet, and the range – which the brand has worked on in partnership with Johnsons Tiles – includes a palette of inky blues, deep greens, decorative motifs and more that captures the mood of this iconic building.
Manchester’s listed Edwardian swimming pool and Turkish Baths complex first opened its doors in 1906 and now serves as a heritage visitor attraction, events venue and TV/film location.
‘Our designers spent time on site at Victoria Baths to soak in the very best in this classic British design.’ explains James Heese, managing director of Tile Giant. ‘Walking through the doors of the Baths, you are transported to another era of elegance.’

Prices start from £35 per m² and a percentage of each tile sold will contribute to Victoria Baths Trust – the charity who look after the building, with the long-term aim of full restoration.

The bevelled edge adds a lovely feeling of dimension while the cracks beneath the glazed surface add texture. And there’s no reason why this tile needs to be restricted to the bathroom – it would work well as a kitchen splashback or statement hallway border.
