A Real Life Corrie Wedding

THE QUAY STREET TOUR IS NOW CLOSED

Coronation Street has seen over 102 eventful weddings in our 53 years, but last night, Monday 8th September, saw the first legal marriage as the newlyweds said their I do’s inside the Rovers Return at Coronation Street The Tour.

Paul Johnston and Andy Daniel from Islington, London became the first couple to marry at the former Coronation Street set after the attraction was granted a wedding licence in June. The ceremony was held inside the Rovers Return with the happy couple exchanging vows behind the bar in front of their loved ones.

I’m really happy that we have been able to give our families and friends such a truly memorable experience. We’ve also made soap history by having a wedding without a punch up!

– Andy Daniel

Following the ceremony the wedding party shared a champagne toast inside the Rovers Return before taking advantage of the truly unique venue to get some memorable wedding photos. Paul and Andy then stepped through the doors of Nick’s Bistro to take their first steps as a married couple onto the cobbles of the nation’s Street.

The summer holidays may be coming to a close, but as the nights draw in you can experience a different side to Coronation Street, with the special Evening Tours.

Your wander through Weatherfield will take a whole new dimension as the sun sets over the cobbles and the lights from the houses twinkle along the Street.

Special Evening Tours will run in addition to the regular daytime tours and will take place every day (during the school holidays) from 6.10pm to 9pm.

Coronation Street was, and still is, a huge part of my life and I have so many fond memories of my time on the old Granada set. It’s great that the site is now open for visitors to see behind the scenes of where I spent so many happy years and I can’t wait to see their reactions when they step on to the cobbles for the very first time!

– Kevin Kennedy

Tickets for the attraction have been in great demand since opening on April 5th, with over 100,000 visitors already flocking to the old filming site.
