CORONATION STREET THE TOUR COMES TO END THIS YEAR
Today we can confirm that Coronation Street The Tour will come to an end on 31st December 2015.
Coronation Street The Tour is operated by Continuum Attractions and opened initially on 5th April 2014 for a six month period but due to public demand, extended planning was granted by Manchester City Council, allowing visitors to continue enjoying the unique experience over Christmas and throughout 2015.
Since opening we have welcomed over half a million visitors to the former site where Coronation Street was filmed before its move to MediaCityUK. Visitors can explore behind the scenes of the sound stage studio featuring the green room, dressing rooms, interior sets such as The Rovers Return, The Kabin and The Duckworth’s and the backlot set of Coronation Street’s famous cobbles.
Juliana Delaney, CEO of Continuum Attractions said:
“We are incredibly proud of the unique experience we have been able to deliver for hundreds of thousands of visitors from across the world.
“This December we’ll be saying farewell to something extraordinarily special and are truly privileged in operating the attraction to have played a part in making this unique opportunity available for the public to enjoy.”
James Penfold, ITV Controller of Partnerships (Commerce & Ventures) added:
“The tour at Quay Street was always for a limited time and the demand has exceeded all our expectations.
However, all good things have to come to an end and the Coronation Street lot will be removed in early 2016 for the site to be returned to Allied London for future development.”
Coronation Street’s new home is at MediaCityUK and the Tour at Quay Street was always for a limited time. Consequently, December will now see in the final visitors to the attraction, after which, the site will be handed back to its new owners, Allied London making way for the redevelopment of the site.
All remaining tickets have now been released and are available from www.ticketmaster.co.uk/coronationstreet.
