Emmerdale Village Tour
Follow in the footsteps of Yorkshire's best loved soap-stars as we tour of the popular fictional village, Emmerdale. Guides will share secrets, stories and reveal fascinating facts behind the making of this award-winning soap as we walk past the exterior sets of the Woolpack, the Village Hall, the cafe and many more. This afternoon we take a lovely scenic drive through `Emmerdale Country' to Otley, `Hotton' in the series, and the tiny village of Esholt, where the show was filmed for decades before the issues of filming in a working and residential village grew too big and the village was re-created at Harewood. We have time to walk around the sleepy lanes known to many as `Beckindale' and then `Emmerdale'.
Please Note: The Emmerdale Village Tour is an outside walking tour with uneven surfaces and some hilly areas. Guests are advised to wear appropriate footwear and clothing.
Coronation Street, The Tour
Today we walk down the famous cobbles of Coronation Street! We pass the houses of some of legendary character's such as No9 with its striking blue stone cladding, No1 home to Ken Barlow, No 8 the family home of the Platts and more. There's also the Rovers Return, The Kabin, Roy's Rolls, Underworld, The Corner Shop where that first scene aired in December 1960, along with Rosamund Street and the newly extended Victoria Street. As we wander through the working set of the street our guide will explain who lived where along with stories lines from yesteryear and filming secrets.
Please note: the tour is highly accessible. There are no steps or stairs on the outdoors tour, the main challenge are the street's hallowed cobbles.
We commence our homeward journey.
