Coronation Street Tours - the correct information
This blog post has been put together by yours truly along with suggestions sent in by other Corrie fans. If you read this elsewhere on the internet, it means they've nicked it from us - shame on them! If you can add to this list, do please let me know.
Visit the exterior of the Granada TV Building on Quay Street. On the entrance, up the steps leading into the building are blue plaques dedicated to some of the Corrie classic actors. Well worth a look.
Corrie walking tours around Manchester are operated by the following:
New Manchester Walks
Also check Mark Llewllin's blog for any upcoming Corrie locations tours by coach - his tours are fab! The next coach tour is on Friday July 27 and run by Elite Coaches. Check out details here.
Places to visit in central Manchester:
The Old Grapes pub owned by Liz Dawn (Vera Duckworth) on Little Quay St.
The Lass O'Gowrie pub in Charles Street. The Lass is a very Corrie-friendly pub with Corrie artwork on the walls and some of their real-ales named after Corrie characters. Well worth a visit. Their website is here.
Further out from Manchester:
The Navigation Inn, once owned by Pat Phoenix (Elsie Tanner)
The Lantern Pike Inn, where Tony Warren wrote his first Corrie scripts
Doris Speed's house, commemorated by Manchester City Council with a plaque
