The Angels Costume Tour will take you on a two hour journey behind the scenes of the world’s foremost provider of costumes to the entertainment industry. Since Angels was first established in 1840, they have supplied costumes for West End productions, the world famous Madame Tussauds, as well as numerous TV and Film productions over the years.
The production of these costumes is based in North London, and Angels now offer you the chance to explore their warehouse, which is packed full of iconic costumes from the world of film, TV, and theatre – a dream for any fashion or film fan. Your guide will lead you around the site taking you through each individual department and the processes that help take costume ideas from design to reality.
As you walk through departments including Tailoring, Ladies Making, Alterations, Uniform, the Badge Room, Armoury, and the Warehouse, you’ll see literally thousands of costumes, across more than eight miles of rails.
Since Angels was first established in 1840, they have been at the centre of the entertainment industry right up to the present day. You’ll hear first-hand accounts of working on recent productions such as Harry Potter, The Crown, Downton Abbey, Wicked, and Game of Thrones. Plus, you’ll see clothes made or recreated for Benedict Cumberbatch, Judi Dench, Fred Astaire, Johnny Depp, Cate Blanchett, and many more.
Who knows, you may even get a glimpse of a famous actor being fitted for a costume. Group sizes are limited to a max of 15 persons.
