Once upon a time the public could visit the set of Coronation Street and tread those famous cobbles, peek through the letterboxes and walk up the ginnel. However, Granada closed the set in 2002 and as far as I know it’s been shut ever since to the great unwashed of the general public (that's you and me). I have heard, however, that if you visit the Museum of Science and Industry on Liverpool Road that’s opposite the Corrie studios, you can get a glimpse of the set from the windows upstairs. I don’t know if that’s true, but if you’ve done it let us know. For those of you with no time to go peeking through museum windows, there’s an online tour on a BBC website that lets you view the street in 360 degrees from the comfort of your chair.
