More Coronation Street sets open on the tour

Exciting new additions are to be introduced to Coronation Street The Tour this Spring which will see the famous newsagents’ set return to the Quay Street studios.

From Saturday 14th March, the interior set of The Kabin will form part of the studio guided tour giving visitors the chance to see inside the shop which has been the centre of many dramatic, humorous and emotional scenes over the years. 

•    The design of this Kabin set was first introduced in 1990 when Rita Fairclough moved her shop premises onto Coronation Street
•    The final scene in this Kabin set was recorded on 19th December 2013.

The Kabin set is a much welcome addition to the Coronation Street experience and will join the other iconic interior sets from the show including The Platts, The Duckworths, Underworld and the infamous Rovers Return in the studio.

Out on the cobbles some of the exterior sets will also be opened up enabling visitors to take a peek inside Websters’ Garage which has been dressed to replicate what you see on screen and step inside Prima Doner to pose for a picture sitting at the counter and immerse themselves in the ultimate Corrie experience.

Coronation Street The Tour’s General Manager, Andy Begg said: “We are really excited to include The Kabin as part of the tour, it is one of the sets that guests really want to see and now they can! We are also sure that they will love the experience of going inside Prima Doner and seeing what it looks like on TV.”

Coronation Street The Tour will be open throughout 2015, tickets are available from

Oh dear, I may have to make another trip across the pond! I loved the tour and Manchester too, so this gives me a bit of an excuse!
