First ever tour devoted to Line of Duty to launch in Belfast
Now we're sucking diesel.
Since Line of Duty wrapped up its sixth season last month, many fans have been missing the antics of anti-corruption police unit AC-12.
That said, there is good news for lovers of the hit TV show as Hastings Hotels and McComb’s Coach Travel have combined to create the tour - the Line of Duty Experience, the very first tour of locations from the hit series.
Marketing Director of Hastings Hotels Julie Hastings said the idea for the tour came from a shared name with Adrian Dunbar's iconic character Ted Hastings.
She said: “Given our namesake with everyone’s favourite Superintendent, we had to be the first to launch a Line of Duty Experience.
“We are delighted to team up with McComb’s Coach Travel to create this unique tour which takes in some of the most exciting filming locations across Belfast City Centre.
“And while you may not float up the Lagan in a bubble, you will certainly enjoy the best views of Belfast and beyond.”
The tour - details of which include spoilers for the series - starts at Belfast’s Grand Central Hotel in Bedford Street which is located beside the Invest NI building, the setting for AC-12 HQ.
There will be various stops across the city centre including ‘Pelbury House’, the headquarters of the Central Police force which provided the backdrop for Ted Hastings' famous peaked-cap adjustments.
‘Kingsgate Printing Services’, the building used as a front for members of the OCG (Organised Crime Gang), and the Lorry Park where Kate shot Ryan Pilkington before doing a runner with Jo Davidson in season six will also be a key part of the tour.
Meanwhile, the iconic subway location, the favourite meeting point for Steve and Kate to have their secret rendezvous, will be the most striking spot to get that Line of Duty selfie.
Visitors will also get the chance to visit the sites of some of the most memorable car chases including the crash from season six when DC Chloe and DI Arnott were transporting Jimmy Lakewell from prison to AC-12 HQ to interrogate him when the police convoy was attacked.
Other filming locations on the tour include Brentiss Prison, where viewers saw prisoners being escorted to, and Tresco Storage, the company used in season three by Danny Waldron to store the decapitated head of Linus Murphy.
The Line of Duty Experience takes place on 3, 17 and 31 July, 14 and 28 August and 11 and 25 September.
Tickets are £49 per person and can be booked at mccombscoaches.com or by calling 048 9086 6162.
