It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of the soaps and Corrie is definitely one of our favourites.
We’ve often dreamed of ordering a drink at the bar of the Rovers Return or popping into Dev’s shop for a pint of milk so we were very excited to hear that the set of the popular show is going on tour!
According to Digital Spy, plans are underway to create a tourist attraction based on Weatherfield and bring it on tour around the UK.
While there hasn’t been any talk of Irish dates yet, it definitely sounds like it would be worth a quick flight as the attraction will include official sets, props, memorabilia and recreations of several recognisable haunts such as The Rovers and The Kabin.
Fans of the show could previously visit the set of the show in Manchester but the props will now be brought to several locations in the UK, with Glasgow expected to be the first stop on the tour.
A spokesperson for ITV confirmed that plans are in the works and there will be a further announcement in the next few weeks.
“At this stage, we have presented an application stating our intent to deliver a touring visitor experience in Glasgow and hope to be in a position to announce further details in the forthcoming weeks.”
In the meantime, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that they decide to come to Ireland!
