About this trip

After a very long hiatus of 3 years, we are finally going back to the Cobbles , and our Weatherfield friends ! 


Our home for the duration of our trip is the fantastic 4 star Holiday Inn Manchester City Centre . The hotel is very highly rated , and in a very convenient central location in Manchester, perfect for getting to just about everything with ease. By staying in one central location for the duration of our trip, there's no more packing and unpacking and dragging luggage every day or two. You can unpack , and settle in for 8 days , and let our experienced coach driver and guides show you around Northern England , and of course get you to the one place you are most interested in on this trip ! 



You'll get to meet some of your favourite Corrie Stars on the set, chat with them, take loads of pictures, and perhaps watch some actual filming. ITV always goes out of their way to make our visit very special, and we've never been disappointed .  


Our dear friend Mark who is known in Manchester as " Mr. Corrie" , will be giving us a great tour of Manchester to start off our week, along with a tour of many locations that have been used in and around Manchester for filming. You'll get to see the Red Rec, Audrey's house on Grasmere Drive that Stephen is trying to swindle her out of...we'll walk along the canal where so many memorable scenes have been filmed over the years, and perhaps even a glimpse inside the church where many Corrie weddings and funerals have taken place.


We have a few special surprises in store for you over the course of this week.


For all of us who grew up during the 60's,  we' have an even more exciting trip to Liverpool than in past years ,with a professional guide who is a Beatles and British Rock enthusiast .We hope to be able to get to hear one of the iconic Beatles Tribute bands in the Cavern Club on Mathew Street and of course see so many of the places where the Fab Four grew up. 


New this year is a  cruise on the River Dee in Chester, and  bargaining at the famous Kirkgate Market in Leeds...the largest covered market in Europe with over 800 stalls .We will also walk the famous walls of York, explore the world famous York Minster cathedral, and shop in The Shambles.


We are also going to spend a full day in The Lake District. This lovely area of Cumbria is described as one of the most beautiful areas of England and a popular holiday destination for Brits. We've visited the Lake District on several of our tours before, and it is always one of the most favourite days on tour.   


This wonderful 8 days will be fully escorted by our amazing Neville MacKay, who through his wonderful sense of humour, and his sincere caring and kind nature ,has endeared himself to hundreds of our past guests. If you haven't yet had the pleasure of travelling on one of our tours with Neville, you are in for one of the best trips of your life ! 


This is a great opportunity for many folks to get to walk the cobbles , rub shoulders with some of your favourite cast members, and see many of the gems in the Northern part of England, without having to take two weeks of your vacation time for a longer and more expensive tour.

You don't want to miss this trip !

Itinerary

Welcome to Manchester
Day 1 - Wed August 30th Meet and Greet Reception 6-8 PM

Book your flights to arrive in Manchester throughout the day on August 30th. Our home for the next 8 nights will be the lovely 4* centrally located Holiday Inn Manchester City Centre Hotel. Guests will receive complimentary wi-fi in all rooms. 

Due to its central location and professional and courteous staff, as well as great amenities, the hotel is one of the top rated choices for those wanting to be close to everything in the centre of Manchester.

Check in is available at 3 PM , but if your flight arrives earlier in the day, you are welcome to leave your luggage with the hotel concierge until 3 PM. 

As you will no doubt be tired after your overnight flights, no group dinner is planned for this evening. Instead we will have an informal Meet & Greet Reception.  


Go grab yourself a bite to eat and do a little wandering downtown before our get together this evening. It's best to conquer jet lag by forcing yourself to stay up until at least 8 PM this evening to adjust your internal clock. Then you'll be sure to fall asleep quickly and be ready for your first full day tomorrow. 


Our Tour Host Neville MacKay will be in the lobby to greet you at 5:45PM and show you to our Welcome Reception. 

Come enjoy a few hor's d'oeuvres and a glass of complimentary wine or beer, say hello and pick up your name tags , and get to meet a few of your fellow travelers and Neville. 


A big welcome to those of you who are travelling with us for the first time, and a sincere "welcome back" to those of you who have been on one or many of our past tours. We are delighted to be sharing this time with you, and trust you will go back home having had a fun and amazing vacation and lots of great memories and new friends !
