Fancy a walk on the Corrie cobbles?

Bosses at the ITV soap are opening up Corrie's new £10 million set to members of the public - but only at weekends.

Corrie's newly-extended set includes a police station, courthouse, Costa coffee shop, Co-op, tattoo parlour and a Weatherfield North tram station.

It'll be the first time the public will be able to tour the set since tours of the former set in Manchester city centre closed in 2015.

Corrie's old Manchester set has now been demolished.

Tours will only take place on Saturdays and Sundays because it's rarely used for filming during the weekend.

Prices for the tours - which are being run by a company called National Holidays and also includes coach travel with reserved seating one night dinner and bed & breakfast hotel accommodation - start at £99.

National Holidays said on its website: “You can immerse yourself in everything ‘Corrie’ with this guided tour, located at the brand new TV Set at Media City Manchester.

 

"With access to all of the street’s most recognisable places; plus an exclusive look behind the scenes, this tour will give you the opportunity to enjoy this much-loved soap beyond the screen and experience the Coronation street life first hand.”

Fans will be given a guided-tour of the set and will have access to original footage and props.

They'll also get to visit the stars' dressing rooms, the green room and indoor mock-ups of Rovers and homes of residents.

The new set took over three years to develop from concept to completion.

Kate Oates, Series Producer, said: “The Victoria Street extension represents an exciting chapter in Corrie history: an amazing new stage, full of dramatic potential. Our amazingly talented design team have created everything from scratch - but it still manages to have the feeling of always having been there, just around the corner.”
