Raising Cary Grant – The Bristol Footsteps of Archie Leach

Raising Cary Grant – The Bristol Footsteps of Archie Leach

‘Everybody wants to be Cary Grant. Even I want to be Cary Grant.’

Our new tour, launched in November 2023, coincided with the launch of ITVX’s new 4 part drama ARCHIE – filmed in Liverpool! But Bristol is where Archie Leach was born and where the seeds of Cary Grant were sown.

Walk the streets that Archie knew as a boy and that Cary returned to, again and again, for the rest of his life. Theatres and cinemas, hotels and restaurants, and the harbour – places that helped form and transform him into a Hollywood star and style icon. An extraordinary story that’s also threaded through with secrets and lies as enduring as Archie’s Bristol landscapes.
