Manchester’s media city is the place to make your on street debut on Weatherfields famous Coronation street.
Wonderful Weatherfield, a fictional town based on Salford, is the setting for the ITV Coronation Street Soap.
Be streetwise with your foot wear choices, and prepare for a few bumps along the way, on the streets iconic corrie cobbles. Amazing Allan, our lovely tour guide, gave nothing but a smooth performance.
The first glimpse you see the brilliant Bistro, Dev and Sunita Alahan’s convenience store and located at no 10 the Kabin News Agents.
Turn the corner, take a breath, and there you have it Coronation Street in all its glory. Jack and Vera Duckworth’s, stone clad terraced, as iconic as the Coronation Cobbles.
Park up at the plats for a cuppa before you head on into Underworld for your shift in the knicker factory, but make sure that you don’t air your dirty linen in public!
Got a puncture, call into Webster’s Autocentre and Kevin will sort you out. While you wait, grab a copy of the Weatherfield Gazzette, to catch up on all the weathy gossip.
Take a moment Imagine the buzz on filming day, as the characters prepare for another day in Wetherfield, rolling into the Rovers Return for a glass or two of their fav tipple.
Ooo go on then duck, I’ll have a bag of chippy chips with lashings of salt and vinegar, from For Your Fries Only. Head under the arch, turn right, to get the back street take on the street, down the graffitied back alley.
Weatherfield bus late again, no worries, why not stop at Steve’s Street Cars for a ride into town.
For a traditional Manchester Café, try out the Pie and Peas, at Roys Rolls proper comfort food!
The street sets the scene for sensational story lines and twisted plots, including heartbreak, deceit and murder.
Recreating, a dark side of the street…The terrifying Tina McIntyre monumental moment, where she plunged to her death, in the Coronation cliff-hanger story line.
Welcome, Victoria Street new additions including Speed Dial, the snooker hall and even a tattoo parlour to encompass the evolving modern Manchester lifestyle.
Weatherfield train line delays, no worries chill and chat in Costa, over cup of coffee and see who is having a heart to heart in the community gardens.
Humming the Corrie Orrie theme tune, in my head, as I left the street to end what was a fabulous classic Coronation Street tour.
