New Manchester Walks have a Coronation Street walking tour on Friday 2 May.

Some of the locations visited:

* The grand Manchester building where Sopheh and Maddeh slept rough.
* The Old Grapes (formerly Liz Dawn’s pub).
* Cropper Corner in Castlefield (where Tony Gordon tried to drown the redoubtable Roy).
* The block from which that lowlife John Stape tried to commit suicide.
* The ornate location where Alf wed Audrey.
…and more.

On the coach tour we go to Portland Basin (where Richard Hillman drove the Platts into the depths; St Christopher’s wedding venue, Weatherfield Registry Office; the original Coronation Street…

Price of walking tour (in old money): £7 (£6).

Bring: Albert Tatlock’s glasses.

Can we get into the set? The old Granada set opens in April. Please contact them for access. Our tour does not include a tour of the old set, but it will add so much to your day to do our locations tours before or after.
