It is well known by my family and friends that before I die, I would like to be an 'extra' on Coronation Street and Emmerdale. So, my partner booked me a tour on the old Coronation Street set as a suprise on our short trip away to Manchester.
Was it cheesy? Yes. Was it Hyped? Yes. Was it expensive? Fairly. Was it worth it? Well, it was for me! The tour is only available for a limited time and last minute booking meant that we were on at 9.00pm. This was great as there wasn't anybody behind us hurrying us along and we never heard the group in front of us so we were not disturbed. I was sorry that we couldn't take photographs inside (but you could have your photo taken in the Rovers at a cost of £7.50 per print) but once outside you could take as many photo's as you liked.
It is a great trip for Corrie lovers, good fun and allows you to play out whatever part you fancy on those famous cobbles, outside the Rovers, in front of Jack and Vera's etc etc. I loved that the group we were part of were all ages from a young boy of 9 to probably early 60's - all enthusiastic and full of fun.
I loved it! And in my head, I've now been on Corrie!
