Fancy spending the night at Coronation Street? Here's how

That famous cobbled street is opening its doors, you can be the first person to stay there!

You wake up, one nice autumnal morning. Pull back the curtains, and see the row of early 20th-century terraced houses. A cobbled street, and next door to you, beautiful green and gold signage saying 'The Rovers Return'. 

That's right, you're on Coronation Street! Well, not on it as in on the tele at 7:30pm and again at 8:30pm – on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. On it as in, you have spent the night in "The Rovers' Annex" situated on that iconic Weatherfield road. 

It won't come easy though... 

Get that calendar marked! The annex is available for only one night, October 2, 2021. It is bookable from (AKA will sell out on) May 26 at 1:00pm BST, on Airbnb (the host is 'The Rovers Return Inn which we think is nice). It sleeps two people.

If by some very good fortunate you manage to book the slot *theme tune trumpet plays in celebration* here's what you can expect. 

Slim chances of getting it aside, the good news is it'll set you back just £60, with all the proceeds going to charity.

While you're there, you'll get a proper Corrie experience. 

This will include a private tour of the set, and dinner. The dinner is non-negotiable, and you wouldn't to negotiate either. It's a hot pot! A hot pot on (probably) the most famous street in Manchester. Bucket list stuff right there. 

What other local goods might you like while living in an annex next to The Rovers Return? A pint. There's a chance you'll be able to sample one from the very taps that have graced your TV Screens for over six decades. Afterwards, you'll have the opportunity to spend the evening watching some of the classic Corrie episodes. Given it's the world's longest-running soap opera, there's a fair few to choose from. 

Finally, the most important meal of the day. Breakfast. Where better, and what better, than Roy's Rolls? Amazing. 

As a resident you'll be able to stroll up and down the famous street as much as you like. Like a real street, though, you won't be able to walk into all the buildings. You might be able to sneak a peak through the windows.
