Coronation Street could be opened up to visitors

The world's most famous cobbled street may become a tourist attraction - for a limited time only.

ITV - Corrie attraction will be for a "limited period"

The long-term future of the Corrie set has not been determined.

ITV has sold the former Granada Studios site on Quay Street to developers Allied London.

After the production has moved to its new home, and subject to planning permission, we are looking into the possibility of opening the current Coronation Street set at our Quay Street site as a tourist attraction for a limited period, giving fans the opportunity to walk down the famous cobbles."
