Yesterday i went to the Coronation Street Tour!
It was amazing
When i heard they were opening the set for the public i was right onto Ticketmaster finding out more information! I am a big Corrie fan and i really enjoy the humour that gets rolled into the soap. I thought the ticket price was really reasonable at £16.50. They could of easily bumped up the price, knowing full well people would still pay it. I can honestly say it was well worth £16.50 and i would of paid more for what we got to see.
Our tour guide was called Scarlett, and she was fantastic! She included humorous jokes and banter throughout the whole guided tour, and of course, she was checking out our Corrie knowledge!
The first half of the tour (which is around 50 minutes), is all inside, which sadly you aren't allowed to take photographs. But it was full of behind the scenes secrets, sets, costumes and lots more! (I won't go into too much detail for the readers who are attending in the coming months).
The last part of the tour is unguided, where you can wander around the cobbles at your own pace, taking photos outside Gail's house or having a nose in some of the gardens!
Sadly, the weather wasn't brilliant when we went, but luckily it stopped raining long enough for us to enjoy the streets of corrie without the down pour of rain!
But, it wouldn't be a true Corrie experience without a little bit of rain, right?!
As i live in the Midlands, my friend and i, stayed at a Premier Inn within Manchester on the Saturday night. This resulted in a cheeky shopping trip to the Trafford Centre, so keep your eyes peeled for a haul on Thursday!
