Coronation Street, is the World’ longest running soap opera in history and is followed by millions of fans worldwide. In October of this year it was officially known as one of the most deadliest places to live. Weatherfield has had 181 deaths, with 32 murders, 38 heart attacks, 18 accidents, 8 bizarre deaths and the rest…well just illness or natural causes!
Now, Irish fans of two of the most popular award winning Soaps on TV can get up close and personal with a visit to the external film sets where all the drama happens on Coronation Street, and out at the Emmerdale Village Tour, also external. All of this and some “retail therapy” time.
Not only that, EXCLUSIVELY to Celtic Horizon Tours you’ll have the very special opportunity to have a “Meet & Greet” with one of the show’s actors.
