Coronation Street walking tour - Wednesday 14 March 2012

Coronation Street expert Mark Llewellin, who blogs for us on ocassion, is leading a Coronation Street walking tour next week.  I've been on one of Mark's tours and they are fabulous so I can't recommend this highly enough.

The tour takes place on Wednesday 14 March - and the tour is offered by Elite Coaches of Sale, Manchester, which will be visiting several Corrie locations. 

Giving you an insider’s view of the world’s most famous TV show. Learn about its creator Tony Warren, how it made it on air, the inside stories and secrets … and visit many of the locations of iconic scenes out and about around Greater Manchester. See the spot where Richard Hillman tried to kill the Platts, find out just where all the Weatherfield weddings take place, see where the new Corrie studios are being built, see where John Stape plunged from the hospital roof – and much more in our fun day out!

Since 1999 it’s no longer possible to visit the Coronation Street Set - but this is the next best thing!


Price is £19.50 and it includes coach travel-morning and afternoon tea at Daisy Nook Garden Centre; services of a guide. Departs 9.00am; home by approx 5.30pm.  Full details here.

Sounds good. I live a long way from Manchester but over the years have been to real locations seen in Corrie outside Manchester such as Blackpool the most prominent one, the Lake District and London.
