Coronation Street guide
|Up for a bit of Coronation Street trivia?|
Did you know that Coronation Street is the world's longest running soap opera still on air, still going strong after 51 years.
It's set in the fictional town of Weatherfield in the North of England.
Weatherfield is actually loosely based on Salford and the show is filmed in Manchester city centre at Manchester Studios.
The show follows the "ordinary" lives of Weatherfield inhabitants and is set around the Rovers Return Inn, the Underworld factory, D&S Alahan's grocery store, The Kabin newsagents, Roy's Cafe and the character's homes.
Looking for a little Corrie treat - try and hunt out the show's 50th anniversary album entitled 'Rogues, Angels, Heroes & Fools' - well worth a listen...
