Coronation Street goes on tour

Coronation Street goes on tour

York-based Continuum Attractions is due to take the set of popular British soap opera, Coronation Street, on tour across the UK.

The visitor attraction operator owns, operates and manages cultural attractions across the country, including The Canterbury Tales, Canterbury, Oxford Castle Unlocked, Oxford, York's Chocolate Story, York, and the Emmerdale: The Tour.

Continuum’s latest addition, Coronation Street on Tour, follows on from the success of Coronation Street The Tour in Manchester, which welcomed over 850,000 visitors to the soap’s original Quay Street sets during its 18 month run.

Juliana Delaney, chief executive of Continuum Attractions said: “After we closed the doors to Coronation Street The Tour in December 2015, we recognised a huge unfulfilled demand from elsewhere in the UK. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to take Corrie on tour to allow more fans to get closer to their favourite television show.”

Coronation Street on Tour will premiere at the SECC in Glasgow from 27 August, before moving on to Belfast next spring, subject to planning permission.
