One of TV’s most famous streets is taking a terrifying turn this Halloween, and fans can revisit all the horrors of the last 60 years.

In case you missed it, the ever-popular Coronation Street: The Tour returned back in March after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s been giving fans of the iconic Manchester-based soap – which has recently celebrated 60 years on air – the chance to discover the hidden world that lies behind the camera at the external sets at MediaCityUK in Salford once again.

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.

Tour guides are also known for sharing secrets of the show as they take you round the set too.

What’s more, is that earlier this year, the famous ‘Stars Tours’ were even brought back for the summer too so fans can meet mystery cast members on the legendary cobbles.


But, with the spooky season right around the corner, and Halloween soon to be here before we know it, Coronation Street has been turned into Horror-Nation Street: The Tour, and has had itself a spooky makeover fit for the occasion, complete with pumpkins and eerie lighting.

You can revisit ghosts of storylines past in these special-edition tours, which take you through over 60 years of villains, death, and destruction on the nation’s favourite street.


There’ll also be face painting, trick or treating, and other “spook-tacular treats” in store.

And also, on selected dates and times in October, there’ll even be a surprise spook in store from a notorious villain of storylines past when you book one of the Star Tours, so not only will you get full access to the Horror-Nation Street, but you’ll also get the chance to meet and greet a mystery cast member too.
