Film set/studio tourSights and activitiesCoronation Street set tour

Price £35

Tours of the Coronation Street television set at the ITV studio complex at MediaCityUK operate on selected weekends when the television show is not filming.

Coronation Street, also referred to as Corrie, is the world’s longest-running television soap opera and was unique when it first aired in 1960 for depicting regular working class people speaking in a regional Northern accent.

What to see on the Coronation Street set

Tours give you access to the external sets from the programme, which includes Coronation Street as well as neighbouring Rosamund Street and a recently-extended Victoria Street.

The set includes cobblestones from the original set in the old Granada studio complex in central Manchester and includes the Rovers Return and also several new shops and restaurants plus a police station and a tram stop.

Visiting the Coronation Street set

After recently relocating from the old Granada television studios in central Manchester, the new Coronation Street set now takes pride of place in the new ITV studio complex at MediaCityUK.

This television studio complex is adjacent to IWM North on the Trafford side of MediaCityUK across the Manchester Ship Canal from the BBC studio complex. The easiest way to get here is by tram and the closest Metrolink tram stop is MediaCityUK, which is served by lines 3 and 7.

You need to check into the tour at the admissions deck inside The Studios from dock10 building, which faces the plaza near the MediaCityUK tram stop. Even though Corrie is an ITV production, you have to check in to the tour on the BBC side of the Manchester Ship Canal.

The 80-minute tours run 9am–6pm on selected weekends only so not to clash with the Coronation Street filming schedule. You are advised to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your tour start time.

It is essential to book tours in advance online and it is not possible to buy tickets at the attraction.

Since it is a bit of a hike to come out to MediaCityUK it is best that you combine a trip to the Coronation Street set with a tour of BBC studio complex, The Lowry arts centre and IWM North which are all no more than a five-minute walk away.
