The Coronation Street Tour – before the set moves to MediaCity

Open between 5 April and 5 October this year...

There are a lot of things that are indisputably Mancunian. Bez running for Salford MP, being a particularly poignant one. Though any sign of a towering Hilton or a white caged Old Trafford sets Manc pride aflame, one of them reigns supreme over them all. It is of course, Coronation Street.

you’ve only got six months to stroll down the cobbles.

Previously impermeable to the public, the ITV show which has been running for fifty-four years is now providing its own tour.

Ever fancied standing where Tracy Barlow stood as she shouted obscenities in the Rover’s Return? Ever dreamed of knocking on the Platt’s door? Or maybe you’ve always harboured a burning desire for Kevin Webster you can now literally play out. Okay, maybe not that last one, but call us Scouse if the lovely people at Granada won’t let you do the others!

In the limited time before the set moves to Media City UK, you’ve got your chance to see behind the scenes of over fifty years of kitchen sink drama. Open between 5 April and 5 October this year, you’ve only got six months to stroll down the cobbles.
