After an overnight stay in Liverpool, we set off the following morning to Manchester for the Coronation Street Tour, which runs from April to October at the original film set and studios. The program's now all recorded at the newly reconstructed set at Media City, Salford. Still raining on leaving Liverpool, it was at least fine in Manchester, even though the sky was still grey!
You start with a very informative conducted tour around the indoor sets, which are located in the building behind the 'viaduct', before exiting onto the Street via the entrance to Nick's Bistro. Although you can't take photos indoors, there's no restriction when you exit onto the outdoor set, where you can roam around as long as you like. Worth a visit if you're a Corrie fan! Smile
Many thanks to Rob (bobsblues) for his UA on my previous upload Red Funnels, most appreciated! SmileSmile

It must be wonderful to photograph in a street devoid of traffic!
Processing works perfectly, as Graham says.

We did this tour a few years ago and was impressed with all the sets and stuff. I think I've got one of me behind the bar of the Rovers but happily that's lost in the archives. Very nice series (and Corrie). Smile

I hope you enjoyed the tour Trev. I went years ago but they had stopped doing the tour then Sad However I did get a wave from Simon Gregson/Steve McDonald. I enjoyed viewing your three images, well processed!

It's fun to see these sets, Trev, I expect the tour is quite popular.
Stopped watching the soaps, found there were far better things on alternative sidesTongue!
