    i'm sure the tours shut down years ago... I remember being dragged round there by my folks when I was a kid too. The only good part imo was the motion ride they had there (seem to remember it being Robocop or something similar)

    I work at ITV Granada on Corrie, unfortunately it closed in 1999.

    Were you just wanting to have a look on the cobbles?

    Why was it shut down then,was it not cost effective?

    The theme park itself not corrie just wasn't cost effective anymore.

    Corrie now film 5 days sometimes 6 days a weeks so tours would be very hard to do now.
