Have you ever wondered what it would be like to walk down the famous cobbles of Coronation Street?
Well now’s your chance, as the famous soap opens its doors to visitors once again.
Starting from April 1 (no, this isn’t an April fools!), fans of the show will not only get the chance to tour the Corrie set, located in the heart of Manchester’s MediaCity, but will also have the opportunity to meet a cast member.
These special ‘Star Tours’ had a sell-out run in 2022 with stars such as Peter Barlow actor Chris Gascoyne and the recently departed Jack James Ryan, who played Jacob Hay, making an appearance.
For those wishing to attend the tours, the star appearing will be kept under wraps until the time of the experience, for an extra level of excitement!
This opportunity to say hello to a cast member and pose for a picture will be a moment to treasure for any soap fan.
That’s not all, as fans will have access to the entire exterior set, with photo opportunities available outside some of the Street’s most famous locations, including Roys Rolls, The Kabin, Underworld and, of course, The Rovers Return.
The Star Tours will run from 2pm – 5pm on the following dates:
- Saturday April 1 2023
- Sunday April 2 2023
- Saturday May 20 2023
- Sunday May 21 2023
- Saturday June 3 2023
- Sunday June 4 2023
Fans will also be able to explore the newest addition to the set: the Weatherfield Precinct.
Your 90-minute tour will be guided by a Corrie expert, who will be on hand to answer any questions. They may even throw in some trivia for you to use at your next pub quiz!
The relaunch of these special tours follows the announcement of the new Coronation Street Visitor Centre, which will serve as the entrance for the tours.
Inside, visitors will also find a cafe, ITV shop, a cinema, the Corrie exhibition floor and three conference rooms.
Tickets to the Star Tours are available for £45 for adults and £42.50 for children. Tours can be booked here.
