Coronation Street the Tour taking place in March, that gives fans of the soap the opportunity to explore iconic production sets such as the Rover’s Return and Audrey’s Salon, has been postponed due to coronavirus concerns.
The statement on the Coronation Street The Tour website said the 90 minute guided tour has been suspended as a “precautionary measure.”
It said: ” As a precautionary measure, and in line with our established contingency plans across the business, we have temporarily paused the operation of our set tours for the safety and welfare of all our staff, production teams and guests.
“If you have a tour booked in March this has unfortunately been cancelled and you will have received an email with further details on what to do next.
“Please contact us via the form below if you have any questions regarding this.
“As this is an evolving situation, bookings for April will be contacted next week. We also confirm that gift vouchers are still available for when tours resume later in the year.
We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.”
