About this trip

Live your Coronation Street dream, and join us on this exciting trip to Northern England. 


Walk on the actual cobbled streets of Weatherfield and be on the current working sets of Coronation Street at ITV Studios in Manchester, UK. Personally meet and chat with many of the actors, and possibly even watch an actual taping ! Imagine coming back home and watching that episode on TV knowing you were there when it was filmed ! 


Venture inside the Rovers Return and sit in a booth,  lean on the counter at The Bistro and sit in the not so comfy chair at Streetcars ! You will see all of the current sets.


We will also be spending a full day in Liverpool, focusing on the lives and history of the famous FabFour ,with included guided coach tour and entrance to The Beatles Story.


Another full day in the beautiful walled Roman City of Chester with its famous ROWS and excellent shopping - a favourite on all our past tours. Join our expert Tour Manager and Guide for a walking tour of this enthralling city, steeped in charm and history.


Blackpool and the famous Blackpool Illuminations and entrance ticket to the Blackpool Tower round out this exhilarating week. The Illuminations are switched on at the end of August and run until November. Take a ride on one of the many illuminated buses and trams, enjoy some fun at Pleasure Beach, take a whirl on the famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom dance floor as the white organ ascends !  A day full of spectacular sights and sounds.   

 


Available Tours for 2019

 

Our 2019 tours this year will run back to back from Manchester, August 26th-September 1st and September 2nd -September 8th. Both itineraries are identical and will be led once again by our charming and dedicated host Neville MacKay, and our very experienced and personable UK Tour Manager Marilyn Parker MacKay. 

If You Are A Corrie Fan Don't Miss It

You won't want to miss this tour ! Each year we are grateful to ITV for allowing our visits, but never know from one year to the next if we will be able to visit again. Their filming schedules are getting busier each year, making it harder to accommodate our visits. So if being on the sets of Coronation Street is on your bucket list, don't risk not being on one of these two tour dates.

Itinerary

WELCOME to MANCHESTER
Day 1 - MONDAY: Check In and Welcome Reception

Plan your flights to arrive in Manchester by early afternoon on Day 1. 

You can fly directly into Manchester via Heathrow, or you might choose to take a relatively short and inexpensive train journey up from London. Rooms will be available for check in by 3 PM at the latest. Some rooms may be available a little earlier.


As you will no doubt be tired from travelling, no group dinner is planned for this evening, but we will be looking forward to meeting everyone at our WELCOME RECEPTION in the hotel from 4-6PM. Neville and Marilyn will be in the hotel lobby to greet you. 


Chat with your fellow travellers, enjoy a complimentary glass of wine , beer or a soft drink and a few hors d`oeuvres, while Neville and Marilyn get to know you, hand out your name badges, and regale you with stories of all the fun and experiences that are sure to fill the next six days.


Although you will no doubt be jet lagged , do try to stay up until at least 8PM to try and re-set your body clock and be ready to roll for an early full breakfast in the hotel.
