Event description

Description

Corrie fans around the world, come and reminisce about the Street’s most famous storylines at the exotic locations where they were filmed on this remarkable tour. We will be taking the tram (not the one that fell off the viaduct onto the Street) and a real-life Manchester corporation omnibus to visit:

* Richard Hillman’s watery grave, where he tried to bump off the entire Platt family (sadly he failed).
* Weatherfield Registry Office where you just knew wedding after wedding was going to hit a major hitch.
* Corrie’s birthplace.
* The real Coronation Street.
* Weatherfield Quays, now home to the new set.
* Granadaland, or what’s left of it.
* The pub where it all started.
* Fiz’s restaurant, right next to Betty Turpin’s funeral church.
We finish off with a much-needed hot pot and pint at Fizz’s restaurant (actually the food's a bit more upmarket, but you know what I mean) right next to the church where Betty Turpin’s funeral was held.


Here are the logistics. So simple even Steve McDonald would understand them
* We will get around the county by tram and bus.
* Transport tickets not included, for customers will have different needs: some might already have a free pass, a season ticket or be in need of a concessions ticket.
* Please buy an all-day tram and bus ticket from a machine at any tram stop.
* We do not have our own personal tram and Metrolink are not involved with the tour. We take a public one.
* There is a fair bit of walking...from location to location.
* Sorry, this really isn't possible with a wheelchair or walking stick.
