Coronation Street has revealed that its famous ‘Stars Tours’ are returning this summer, and it means you can meet cast members on the legendary cobbles.

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 much-loved 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.
