The UK’s favourite soap is offering fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to stay on the historic Corrie cobbles.
For one night only, Corrie fans will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the iconic location and adopt the Rovers Return as their next-door neighbour.
The listing on the accommodation site turned up on Tuesday morning, under the label “Spend a night on Coronation Street” offering an “entire guest suite hosted by Rovers Return Inn” at a cost of £60…bargain!
The self-contained pop-up house, with its red-bricked façade and double-glazed windows, will be situated in the heart of the street, next door to the famous Rovers Return Inn. During the stay, guests will be taken on a private tour of the set followed by a hotpot dinner from the annexe while watching classic Corrie episodes, and if they’re lucky, a pint in the Rovers and breakfast from Roy’s Rolls may be on offer too.
Although interior sets will be closed, guests will be able to wander around Coronation, Rosamund and Victoria Street and they will even be allowed to take a stroll down the ginnel, which is the site of many a Corrie secret rendezvous.
Head of Continuing Drama John Whiston says: “What fan of Coronation Street hasn’t had a dream where you find yourself transported into the show itself, wandering around the houses of your best loved characters?
“I certainly have. This unique stay gives you the chance to do just that, stay the night and wake up right next to The Rovers Return.
“What better way to celebrate Britain opening up again than your very own staycation on the nation’s favourite Street.”
Amanda Cupples, General Manager for Northern Europe at Airbnb comments: “As restrictions begin to ease and Brits plan summer staycations, Airbnb remains committed to helping people find unique and unforgettable travel experiences within the UK.
“Being the first people ever to stay on the nation’s most loved street is a dream come true for any Corrie fan and a once in a lifetime way to spend time with a friend or family member.”
