If you really would like to see Ireland and Scotland and visit or go back to Corrie, you should seriously consider this tour. Don’t wait for next year!

We’re visiting the Rock of Cashel, touring the Ring of Kerry, Molls Gap and the Lakes of Killarney where we have a cruise on Kenmare Bay, then on to Blarney Castle where you get to kiss the Blarney Stone ! You’ll be delighted with the entertainment at dinner in Dublin at the Merry Ploughboys Pub- The Merry Ploughboys have been performing for over 17 years and delight their audiences with the best in traditional Irish music…followed by a specially commissioned show by the All Ireland and World Champion Irish Dancers ! Can’t you just picture yourself there now ! In Scotland you’ll tour Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands and be treated to Scotland’s most famous evening of traditional Scottish music with bagpipes, fiddles and dance, and featuring the acclaimed Three Scottish Tenors ! There are lots of tours to Ireland and Scotland out there folks, but none exactly like this that were specifically designed for you loyal Coronation Street fans….Not only will you get to experience both Ireland and Scotland, but you will then go on to spend time in famous Blackpool…Pleasure Beach, the Blackpool Tower,with the majestic ballroom where Roy took Hayley to dance, and then on to Manchester and everything Weatherfield related ! David and his staff at ITV always change up our visit in some way, so even though you may have been before…it is always fresh and exciting ! It is doubtful that we will be doing this itinerary again folks. So don’t miss this chance ! Neville our charismatic and entertaining tour host, and Marilyn, our personable and  extremely knowledgeable tour manager will be back with us again, and would love to share this special trip with you ! Hope to hear from you soon !

Coronation Travel is committed to making sure that each and every one of our guests has an amazing vacation.Our professionalism, genuine caring,  and attention to every last detail helps you to have a fun and stress free vacation.  Please do read some of the testimonials from many of our recent guests. Here is one recent affirmation from a group member on our September 27th-October 6th 2014 tour … 

 

 

“This was my second trip with Coronation Travel, and both trips were to the set of ‘Coronation Street’ and beyond.  I can whole heartedly vouch for this company. Let me tell you…they have thought of everything, so you can just go along for the ride and enjoy it all. That’s not to say you will be complacent or bored. There is so much to see and do on a Coronation Travel Tour that there is no time to be bored, but there is not so much to do that you feel worn out either. They managed to build in opportunities to give you a rest/break if you want it without having to miss out on any group events.

The accommodations were always clean and comfortable because the hotels we stayed in were very good ones. Whenever there was a group meal, it was always very good…this is not a “soup and sandwich are good enough” kinda tour. Indeed, the meals were always at lovely places with ample choice.

The places we visited were varied and we always had knowledgeable guides to give us the history and much more.  I cannot say enough about our hosts/guides, in particular Neville and Marilyn, who are just the kind of people you would want to have along as a guide. Marilyn is knowledgeable, helpful, alert, calm, humourous and we love her English accent. Neville is a gracious host, making sure he spends time with everyone, and he does it all with a wonderful spirited sense of humour. He is smart, kind and just good fun to be around.

If this is a ‘Coronation Street’ tour you are considering, I can tell you that it is very exciting…like Christmas when you were a kid! Everyone is in high spirits on the way to the set and the excitement remains throughout the visit and beyond. Our host was from the show and he gave tidbit tales about the actors and the sets. The best was when he gave us ‘behind-the-scenes’ information about, for example, the reason for the colour of the walls or fake magazines titles on the shelves at The Kabin. We saw our share of ‘stars’, which was thrilling, and for me, walking around the actual sets that you see on TV was just as exciting.

The group was wonderful and so much fun! Many people who were on my first trip were also on my second trip, and many of us still keep in touch. We were really such a happy group, and that is largely due to the planning and organization of Coronation Travel. Everything worked as planned, or if there were any problems, we didn’t hear about them. There was nothing that was a hassle or that needed fixing, from our accommodation and meals to our bus trips and tours.

I recommend Coronation Travel for their professionalism, experience and understanding of what travelers want, and I look forward to seeing what future tours they have in the works. “
