Having never been on an organized group tour before, I wasn’t sure what to expect from the “Coronation Street to Strawberry Fields” tour. I must admit I was more than pleasantly surprised! From the both modern and historical sites of London , to the quaint medieval walled cities of York and Chester, this tour was fantastic. For Beatles fans, the trip to Liverpool and the visit to Penny Lane and Strawberry Field were just a bonus ! But the crown jewel in the tour was the day in Manchester where we immersed ourselves in Coronation Street. From the tour of off-studio sites like the Canal and the Red Wreck, to the seeing the sets housed in Granada TV studios, it was a day like no other. The group watched a filming , toured the living rooms of the Coronation Street inhabitants, and finally, walked the cobblestone street of Coronation ! We even got to meet and talk to some of the stars !! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is a fan of England, Coronation Street, or both !!
