Rated 4.3 out of 5 based on 6 Feefo user ratings.


Manchester is the home city for Britain’s longest-running soap, Coronation Street.

The show which is now based at MediaCity in Salford is mainly filmed on a closed working set.

However Coronation Street has been filmed in Manchester ever since its very first episode aired on ITV on 9th December 1960 . Written by Tony Warren the show was based on his personal experience living in the the terraced streets around the old Manchester docks where communities were very close.

The coach tour includes numerous locations where the show was filmed and also the inspirations including Ordsall where the original street was located.

Prior to moving to MediaCity the show was filmed at Granada TV studios for  more than 50 years from 1961-2014.

We will take you to the only place in Manchester where you can look into the ‘Street’

You’ll have the chance to see St Thomas’s Church where many of the weddings, christenings and funerals featured in the show including the weddings of Jason and Sarah, Peter and Leanne and Fred and Bev. Plus it was seen in the funeral of Callum Logan.

See sites featured in the Coronation Street credits as well as “Cropper’s Corner” the area featured when Tony Gordon tried to drown Roy Cropper in a canal. You will also get to see the steam railway featured when Hayley and Ron Cropper travelled to their wedding.

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.
