CORONATION Street fans can now get a taste of life on TV’s most cobbles.

For six months starting in April, doors of the former Coronation Street set will be open to the public.

The highlight of the tour will be the Street itself with time to explore and take an iconic photo outside the Rovers Return, Roy’s Rolls or the Kabin.

Interior room sets will be on display as part of the behind the scenes tour, giving visitors an opportunity to see where some famous scenes were filmed, revealing insights behind the production.

Studio guides will reveal fascinating facts behind the making of the soap where filming took place for more than 50 years before moving to MedaCityUK, Salford.

Visitors can take a peek into a star’s dressing room, watch rare footage and reminisce over favourite plots and characters with family and friends. Coronation Street executive producer Kieran Roberts said: “After 53 years at the Quay Street studios, Coronation Street has now moved to our new home in MediaCity, but I’m thrilled that our old set is opening as a visitor attraction this year.

“We’re very excited to be able to share with the public so many unforgettable stories and magical memories from over five decades of Coronation Street production.”

Paul Simpson, managing director at Visit Manchester, said: “Coronation Street is the UK’s best-loved soap and the new tour has been very highly anticipated since it was announced that the Street would open for a limited period this year. I’m sure that the attraction will be a hugely popular and will make for a great day out in the city.”
