Coronation Street just got BIGGER

Coronation Street just got BIGGER

The cobbles of Coronation Street have remained remarkably unchanged over the past 57 years. It's perhaps one of the keys to its popularity - while the modern world is ever-changing, you can always turn to Corrie for old-fashioned charm.

Now the soap is expanding its set in a most dramatic way, with an expanded set. The brand new set, which will be used in addition to the existing street, brings a taste of modern life to the characters, including a Costa Coffee and a Co-op.


Other additions will include a specially commissioned mosaic memorial bench, which is a touching tribute to superfan Martyn Hett and the other people who lost their lives in the Manchester Arena bombing.

There will also be eateries, an urban garden, a tramstop and a police station - all of which will no doubt be the backdrops for plenty of drama!

The road of the new set is a piece of history, as it's made from reclaimed cobbles that were once used on the old Quay Street site, which was home to the residents of Coronation Street from 1982 - 2013.

Victoria Street will be part of the action from April 20th onwards, and has been officially opened for filming by members of the cast.
