Getting a behind the scenes look at all the sets, dressing rooms and make up rooms was fantastic and even with my lack of knowledge the tour interested me as I could see how the sets were built and dressed for each of the characters houses. It was also really good to learn the tricks of the trade and things to look for when watching the show. For example did you know that none of the staircases lead anywhere and the actors have to stand at the top of the stairs until the end of the scene and try to make sure no one can see their feet!
After touring the sets and looking inside the Rovers return, which is tiny in reality, we headed out into the street.
cigarette. Unfortunately you can get a snack in roys rolls or buy your sausages from Fred Elliotts butchers but you can head into the medical centre/hospital/gift shop to pick up a few mementos before leaving the street behind you.
