Media Centre sights in Northwest England
- Sort by:
The BBC's new northern home is but one significant element of this vast, 81-hectare site. Besides hosting six departments of the national broadcaster (BBC Breakfast, Children's, Sport, Radio 5Live, Learning and Future Media & Technology), it will also be home to a bespoke set for the world's longest-running soap opera, the perennially popular Coronation Street (which broadcasts on ITV). There are no plans as yet to offer tours of the Corrie set, but you can visit the BBC's impressive set-up and see the (new) sets of some of TV's most iconic programmes on a guided, 90-minute tour that also includes a chance for kids to 'make' a programme in an interactive studio.
