  • Where is the attraction?

    Coronation Street On Tour is a touring attraction. Our first stop is from August 27th to January 1st at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) in Glasgow. The address is Exhibition Way, Glasgow G3 8YW. Our Glasgow page includes a map of the area. You can find out more about the SECC here.

    Future venues will be released in due course.

  • Will Coronation Street On Tour be coming to a venue near me?

    Currently only Glasgow is confirmed, from August 27th to January 1st. Subject to planning, we will then be moving to Belfast. We will confirm further locations in due course.

  • Is Coronation Street On Tour the same as the tour in Manchester last year?

    Coronation Street The Tour took place at the former filming location at Quay Street, Manchester for a temporary 18 month run ending 31st  December 2015. The site was then handed back to its new owners, making way for the redevelopment of the site. Coronation Street’s new home is at MediaCityUK and the Tour at Quay Street was always for a limited time.

    We are now taking Coronation Street On Tour, for the first time ever outside of the North West. An impressive purpose built showdome will be home to iconic sets and authentic memorabilia. From Roy’s to the Rovers, the Kabin to the cobbles, the Street has its suitcase packed and is ready to hit the road.

    The experience will be different to Coronation Street The Tour and a ‘must visit’ for any Corrie fan!
