World of Coronation Street Tour - Day Three

Sunday 11 September

This morning we drove to the city of Chester with its historic black and white Tudor-style buildings, interesting shops and beautiful cathedral. We had some free time to look around  - and we also saw the military parade marking the anniversary of 9/11, before boarding the coach for a drive through the Cheshire countryside. Next stop was Tatton Hall, a palatial stately home set in huge grounds. This was in fact the first outside filming location Corrie had back in 1962. It’s also where Graeme took Tina on his rickshaw, where Deirdre’s solicitor was based and where Annie’s Rover ended up in the lake. Most recently it’s where Roy and Hayley married. We had plenty of time to look around – and enjoy a bite of lunch.

Shelley's wedding dress
 Next stop was the church where Joe was buried, where Betty married Billy and where baby Jack Dobbs was christened. We got chance to look around and to see, on exhibition, Shelley's wedding dress! Then, continuing the wedding theme, we called at the location of Ken and Deirdre’s second wedding (a friendly policeman also posed for pictures with everyone!) before heading back to the hotel.

Tonight was a free evening.
