World famous costumiers Angels, responsible for outfits seen in films ranging from Titanic and Star Wars to Lawrence of Arabia and The Great Gatsby, is for the first time opening its doors to the public with a new 'Behind the Seams' tour. Previously only available to members of the press and select VIP guests, the new tour will invite visitors to explore the extensive costume collection housed by the company in its North London warehouse. Eight miles of rails and over one million items are included in the collection, featuring pieces worn by everyone from Judi Dench to Johnny Depp and Cate Blanchett. With more than 170 years of experience in the business, the Angels tour promises unprecedented insight into the history of the film industry, with the chance to hear first hand accounts of working on some of the biggest productions the company has ever been involved with, including Shakespeare in Love, Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones.

Tours are £20 per person and will run regularly throughout the year. Visit www.angels.uk.com for more information.
