ITV has announced the opening of its brand-new Coronation Street Experience, and it’s giving fans access to areas they previously haven’t been able to before.

The Coronation Street Tour is known for giving people the chance to discover the hidden world that lies behind the camera at the external sets at MediaCityUK in Salford, and has always been massively popular with fans of the iconic Manchester-based soap since it launched back in 2014 – with tickets regularly being snapped up all the time.

Attracting fans from not just the UK, but all over the world, the 90-minute tours let you follow in the footsteps of all your favourite characters, and give you the chance to walk around the famous sets of the Rovers Return, Roys Rolls, Underworld, The Kabin, and so much more.

But next month, the already award-winning experience is about to get even better.

Open seven days a week, the new exhibition is set to extend the current tour and make it even more “immersive” than ever before – giving fans the opportunity to see Dierdre’s famous glasses up close, take a seat in Roy’s Rolls, or even stand behind the bar at The Rovers.


And on top of getting to see the replica sets and original props, The Coronation Street Tour itself has also evolved to include access to new sets such as Weatherfield Precinct, so visitors can discover even more secrets from their expert tour guides.

ITV says the new exhibition floor will “complement the tour”, and alongside a cinema, cafe, and retail space, will create “the perfect Coronation Street Experience”.


Neil Currie, Guest Experience Manager at Coronation Street: The Tour, said he’s “thrilled” to be able to offer fans an “even more immersive experience”, adding that: “Having this kind of exhibition floor gives us the chance to constantly update and change things alongside the programme’s on air stories, once a storyline has played out on your TV screen.”

He revealed that they’ll be “updating the props and costumes along the way”.
