Granada Studios Tours
However, what I do is offer visits to the 'off studio' locations. Places like the one shown in the picture - it's where Richard Hillman drove the Platts into the canal. He of course, died there. Later, David drove his car into the water in an attempt to disrupt Sarah and Jason's wedding. Other locations I tend to include are - the church where the majority of weddings and funerals take place, the hall where Steve and Becky married, the Red Rec, Wetherfield Quays (Don drove Alma into the water there. Made a change!) where Steve proposed to Karen. Places like that, out of the studios, but associated with some of the biggest stories.
If you still have a longing to visit the studios and the actual street set then look out for some of the competitions running for the 50th. Check out the websites of some of the associated companies - Holland's Pies, Imperial Leather, Warburtons and so on. Quite a few have studio visits as prizes.
