      Oh it was FAB!… We went all the way around the street and even in the sets (rovers, the platts house, tyrones and Fiz’s house which was the Duckworths and then the factory) Also got to see the make up department, Green room and the dressing rooms. Unfortunately we were allowed to take any pictures inside due to Copyright 🙁

      You should!, it was real eye opener to what actually goes on behind the scenes, very educational for the kids too 🙂

      We had lots of fun, unfortunately none of the houses/businesses were open, but theres nothing actually in those apart from props, camera leads etc 🙂

      It was great!… and surprisingly small compared to how you envisage on the TV.. Strange feeling walking up and down the cobbles, knowing that the same cobbles had been on TV for the past 50 years! very surreal feeling 🙂

      I loved the old Tour… This one was slightly better as you actually got to go around the actual sets and then the Street 🙂
