Coronation Street To Stay In Manchester: Exclusive


THE cobbles are staying.
I broke the news first and exclusively this morning that Coronation Street is staying in Manchester.
Talks about moving ITV Granada from the current site at Quay Street to Salford Quays dramatically broke down this week.
ITV were moving forward with plans to transfer to Trafford Wharfside.
But discussions have now been terminated by ITV and the move scrapped following a dramatic reduction in the financial commitment being offered by MediaCity developers Peel.

    I enjoy your site. I was happy to hear that Coronation Street is staying on the existing location in Manchester. I visited Coronation Street (Granada Studios) about 15 years ago on a vacation (from Canada) before the studio ended it’s tours. I am happy to say that I walked the ‘historical’ cobbles then and they are staying especially for the ’50th’ Anniversary. Great news!
