Corrie will open the Cobbles to two guests, giving super-fans the opportunity to immerse themselves in the iconic location as they stay at ‘The Rovers’ Annexe’, Coronation Street, M10. Available to book on Airbnb from today, guests will stay in the self-contained pop-up house situated in the heart of the street, next door to the famous Rovers Return.

During the stay, guests will be taken on a private tour of the set followed by a hotpot dinner from the annexe whilst watching classic Corrie episodes. 

Fans will be able to watch Deirdre Barlow’s affair with Mike Baldwin, the disastrous tram crash a decade ago, and last year’s classic moment where David Platt discovers a sinkhole in his back garden. 

If they are lucky, a pint in the Rovers and breakfast from Roy’s Rolls may be on offer. 

The view from The Rovers’ Annexe looks out towards Audrey’s hair salon and a little further along to Prestons Petals and the kebab shop.

As the guests walk down the street they will pass Fiz and Tyrone’s house, take a peek in the Kabin window, or wander up Victoria Street to Speed Daal.

Although interiors will be closed, guests will be able to wander around Coronation, Rosamund and Victoria Street to their heart’s content.

The annexe has taken inspiration from the Rovers Return B&B decor. Guests will enjoy a comfortable living area to relax in, with homage to Jenny Connors’ wood panelling and patterned wallpaper.

The living room has a dining table where guests can sit and enjoy their hotpot. The adjoining twin bedroom provides a comfy bedding and prime Weatherfield views.

John Whiston, head of continuing drama at ITV, 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, adds: “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 Coronation 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.”

No pets are allowed, nor is smoking and there is a maximum of two guests.
