Enjoy this great TV tour, taking in two iconic locations!

The Coronation Street Studio Tour at MediaCityUK has fast become one of the most popular visitor attractions in Manchester and on this delightful new tour, we have combined it with a 'behind the scenes' tour of the BBC studios at the same location. So, enjoy this immersive trip and combine it with an evening out in the vibrant city of Manchester, known throughout the world as the birthplace of the industrial revolution. It has a proud history of science, politics, music, arts, and sport. And today the city combines this heritage with a progressive vision to be a city that delivers surprise and delight in equal measures.

Ibis Budget Manchester Salford Quays

Located in fashionable Salford Quays, this hotel is a great base for our tour as it is so close to the Coronation Street Studio Tour and Media City, yet it has ample and regular transport links directly into the city (Salford Quays metro stop is a mere four-minute walk away).

Salford Quays itself is a vibrant waterfront development on the outskirts of Manchester. With easy access in and out of the city and plentiful entertainment on our doorstep, ibis Budget Manchester Salford Quays is a great balance of location and affordability.

Our hotel offers comfortable and modern budget accommodation for you to enjoy.

Day 1

After joining the coach at one of our convenient local pick-up points, we make our way north to Manchester and the BBC studios at Media City for our tour. Find out all about the inner workings of these fascinating studios before continuing on to your hotel for the night. Once you have checked in, the evening is yours to enjoy. Take the metro into the heart of Manchester or just stroll around Salford Quays. Whatever your choice, you'll find plenty of dining options and things to do.

Please note: All visitors are permitted one small bag only (no rucksacks or shopping bags) and all adults aged 18 and over will be required to provide photographic ID to allow entry into the BBC Studio tour.

Day 2

Enjoy a tasty breakfast before heading out for our visit to the Coronation Studios Tour. Walk the famous cobbled street and find out everything 'Corrie' you have ever been curious about! After enjoying lots of time to explore, rejoin your coach and head back to South Wales.

Coronation Street Studios

ITV have opened their outdoor Coronation Street sets at MediaCityUK to the public, including the world-famous cobbled street. The experience lasts around 80 minutes taking in Coronation Street, Rosamund Street and the newly extended Victoria Street, with plenty of opportunities for photos. Visitors will walk in the footsteps of the famous residents, discover filming secrets and hear stories of their favourite characters.

BBC Studio Tour at Salford Quays

Join us on this informative and entertainment tour of the BBC studios, the corporation's new base in the north of England and one of the most ambitious projects in the BBC's history. This is your opportunity to take a peek behind the scenes...

These studios are home to a whole host of BBC channels and programmes including favourites such as Match of the Day, Blue Peter, A Question of Sport, Mastermind, BBC Breakfast, Radio 5 live, CBBC, BBC Sport and the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, to name just a few.

The well-informed and friendly tour guides will entertain and surprise you as you walk in the footsteps of your favourite stars. We'll make sure that you see the most interesting areas available when you visit us, as well as giving you a fascinating insight into how TV and radio work. You can also have a go at making your own news and weather bulletin in our interactive studio.

Please note that the BBC buildings at MediaCityUK are working buildings, so no two tours are the same, but they'll always be informative, interesting and fun.
