Do you picture yourself walking the famous cobbles of Coronation Street to sample Roy’s rolls or pull a pint at the Rovers Return? Well, you’re in luck, because the official ITV studio tour gives viewers the chance to have the ultimate ‘Corrie experience’.
Coronation Street has recently relocated and is now filmed at the newly developed Media City, so this is an exciting, one-off opportunity to see where the iconic soap was previously filmed for decades in Castlefield (Manchester) and get an insight into the soap’s history.

As well as the attractions above, the tour offers exclusive access to some of the soaps most famous sets.

Coronation Street Tour News
The tour has already made national headlines several times. In September last year, some of Weatherfield’s most famous dogs spent a few days at the tour in celebration of National Pet Month. At Christmas time, the street was lit-up with festive decorations and ‘twilight tours’ including carol singing were held in the evening.
ITV brought back some of the former stars of the street to make some special appearances at the tour. These ex-Coronation Street actors included Richard Hillman, Maureen Naylor, Reg Holdsworth and Curly Watts.
The attraction was granted a wedding licence in June, and a couple from Islington, London, were the first pair to legally say I do inside the Rovers.
The tour already boasts over 100,000 visitors, and additional capacity has been released to meet the demand since opening last summer.
