From 1968 to 1977 the BBC broadcast 80 episodes of Dad’s Army attracting battalions of fans across the world. More than 40 years since the show ceased productions fans are still marching to the tune of Captain Mainwaring and his rag tag army of home Guards. Today Brit Movie Tours can offer fans a treat with our walking Dads Army tour.

Although set in Walmington-on-Sea on the Sussex coast the show was filmed in the Norfolk town of Thetford. This town is regarded as the home of Dad’s Army and is where you can immerse yourself into the hilarious world of Pike, Captain Mainwaring, Private Walker, Lance-Corporal Jones and Sergeant Wilson.

You can follow in the footsteps of the adventures of the platoon from this classic TV series on a guided walking tour around the town that was home to the production. Your expert guide will take you round numerous locations from the show.

On the Dads Army tour, you’ll learn how the episodes were made, get trivia about the actors, scenes and see locations from various episodes.
