Coronation Street hot spots in Manchester

Emails to the blog continue to ask when the Coronation Street set will be reopened to fans. The last we heard was that the set's still closed to the public.

So, for fans planning a trip to Manchester who want to see some Corrie sights, where would you recommend they visit as they can't get into the set?

How about these suggestions:
The Old Grapes pub owned by Liz Dawn (Vera Duckworth) on Little Quay St.
Negresco restaurant on Deansgate. This was used for filming as The Queens pub when Liz McDonald was landlady.

Further out from Manchester:
The Navigation Inn, once owned by Pat Phoenix (Elsie Tanner)
The Lantern Pike Inn, where Tony Warren wrote his first Corrie scripts

If you can add to this list of places for Corrie fans to visit when they're in Manchester or the surrounding area, do please leave a comment below, with a weblink if you can, and I'll add details in.

Is Studio 1-5 still on Oxford Road opposite the BBC? I don't suppose it is, it's nearly 30 years since I lived in Manchester. It's where Gail was stood up on a date and chatted up by Graham Fellows (aka Jilted John).
