The Coronation Street Tour is designed for fans of the show and will take you on a 4 hour journey into the lives of the characters of Britain’s longest running soap opera.
The tour includes various locations where special moments of the show were filmed and also the place that inspired the author, Ordsall where the original street was located.
The show was filmed at Granada TV studios for more than 50 years from 1960-2014, but is now based at Media City in Salford, mainly filmed on a closed working set.
The first episode aired on ITV on 9th December 1960. Written by Tony Warren, it was based on his personal experience living in the ‘back to back’ terraced streets around the old Manchester docks where communities were influence by strong women.
You’ll have the chance to see ‘St Thomas’s’ Church where many of the weddings, christenings and funerals featured in the show were filmed. Hear about good times and bad – the weddings of Jason and Sarah, Peter and Leanne and Fred and Bev and the funeral of Callum Logan.
See sites featured in the Coronation Street credits, as well as “Cropper’s Corner” the area where Tony Gordon tried to drown Roy Cropper in a canal. Find out why Roy should never have been there. You will also get to see the steam railway featured when Hayley and Ron Cropper travelled to their dramatic wedding.
We’ll stop at the iconic ‘Coronation Street’ sign for a photo opportunity.
No location tour would be complete with seeing where many dramatic court room scenes took place. This tour is a treat for fans and also a great way to see this great city.
