Visited Coronation Street tour with family ( x2 adults plus 15 & 11 yr olds) today. Pre booked tickets say to arrive 30mins before tour time but this is really not necessary. Just a highly overpriced cafe to wait in with a video loop showing programme aired earlier in the year about move to new media city location. For those who visited the Granada Studios tour in the 90's, please do not expect anything like the same experience this time. This is purely based on Coronation St with a short guided tour
of the internal sets followed by a look around the exterior street. We were unlucky to have a really annoying tour guide (12:40 tour) who was way over the top with his presentation style and rather patronising at times. The tour does feel very rushed and the presentation they give is very scripted and a bit " cheap Disney" by want to be actors! Nevertheless we generally enjoyed the 1.5hr although a family rate of £13.50 per person is a bit steep for what you get to see. A real shame the street will be pulled down later in the year - a very good case for a preservation order I think ! Tip: park for £4.50 for full day in Museum of science and industry which is straight behind granada studios.
