Newest Review: ... could even go inside the Rovers Return pub. This was extremely popular amongst both locals and tourists. I have always been a big fan of Coronation Street so I used to really enjoy it and used to go and knock on doors expecting Dierdre to come out and shout at us with her dinosaur neck in full swing! Coronation Street wasn't the only set you could see, you could see some mock ups of some ... more

When I was younger I went on the Granada Studios Tour in Manchester many times. It opened in 1988 but unfortunately closed its doors in 1999. Most people in Manchester didn't even know it had closed, there was very little media coverage around it and people were turning up years after it had closed wondering what was going on. There was quite a few things to do/see at Granada Studios. The main attraction was getting to visit the famous "Coronation Street" set and walk on the famous cobbled street. You could even go inside the Rovers Return pub. This was extremely popular amongst both locals and tourists. I have always been a big fan of ... Read the complete review

why is this place closed down!!...it was so good for visitors, and for students who are studying travel and tourism..esp the corrie fans...this place was the highlight of North England. I went with college in 1995. I still have an empty packet of crisp that i kept as it had the logo of granada studios, i'm glad i kept it now.. also the house of parliament, and 10 downing street was good to walk into.

If have a good look at some of the better opinions you will see what people give good ratings for. If you read and rate other people's opinions they may read and rate yours thats what it is all about! by Gwenick on 01.02.2002 at 23:01 Here's a tip. Spend more time on each opinion. Only post one a day (at most) and read and rate other people opinions. You'll get more read (and therefore more money) that way. As it is you are doing what is known as 'churning' - and people won't read you at ... Read the complete review

I have visited Granada Studios in Manchester on numerous occasions and always had a great day out. It is the place where you get to walk down the famous cobbles of Coronation Street. What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than nosing through all the windows of Britain's best loved street? I decided to organise a school trip to the studios. Not only is it an entertaining day it is also very educational. There are tours backstage where you can see the make up department, props and scenery as well as the editorial suites. I seemed to be drawing a total blank in my search for information though. There was no web site to be found, no leaflets etc. ... Read the complete review

Yes, you really can walk down that famous street!!! We visited coronation street a few years ago whilst on our way home from a holiday in Blackpool, We decided go home via Manchester. It really is very interesting, having watched the show for years it's great to see everything in real life. It's a lot smaller then I imagined, the houses have got nothing inside except building materials,and they are only decorated just inside the front door, the stairs only go half way up, so when you see the kids getting sent upstairs they wait at the top until the next scene then come down again!!! as there is nowhere for them to go!!! It was great seeing the ... Read the complete review
