Fans can’t get enough of the BBC’s crime-busting drama, Line of Duty. You can find out even more about this award-winning series on this brand new Line of Duty Tour.
Line of Duty was written and created by Jed Mercurio and set in an unspecified British city. Filming for season one took place in Birmingham, then from season two onwards, production moved to Northern Ireland, with the majority of filming taking place in or around Belfast.
The Line of Duty Walking tour starts in the centre of Belfast at Irish Tour Tickets before heading straight over to one of the tour’s highlights: AC-12 HQ. The fictional anti-corruption unit is where Superintendent Ted Hastings leads DI Steve Arnott, DI Kate Fleming, and the rest of his team fighting corruption within the Central Police Force.
But of course, all good things have to come to an end, and in Season six Steve Arnott has a quiet word with his ex to talk about leaving anti-corruption. The tour takes you to the location where this conversation took place.
Naturally, a Line of Duty walking tour wouldn’t be complete without visiting the location of at least one dramatic arrest, an ambush while transporting a prisoner, and the discovery of a dead body.
During the tour, you’ll follow in the footsteps of Dot and Kate after Dot’s ‘urgent exit required’ message during Season three. You’ll see a section of the chase scene including where Kate hitches a ride on a lorry in pursuit of Dot, and the fictional Kingsgate High Street where they sprint through the crowded street, weapons in hand.
From Season five you will see the spot where Steve ignores Hastings Fahrenheit order during the adrenaline-filled standoff with rogue undercover agent John Corbett.
You’ll visit the locations for some of the most exciting moments in Season six including the shooting between Ryan, Jo and Kate and the subsequent car chase scene where Jo and Kate are ultimately caught.
The final location on the tour is one of the most famous meeting points used in Line of Duty. Head to the graffiti-covered tunnel seen throughout the series where AC-12’s undercover agents have their secret meetings. Remember your cameras, you’ll want to get a photo at this location!
