Have you looked at the famous Coronation Street cobbles and longed to spend a night up north in Weatherfield? Well, now you can.
Set in the tastefully decorated 'The Rovers' Annexe' (situated right next door to the legendary Rovers' Return pub), the stay includes a private tour of the set and a 'hotpot dinner' from the property with screenings of classic episodes - such as Deidre Barlow's intense tryst with Michael Baldwin, or when devil child David Platt discovered a sink hole in his back garden,
While interiors will be closed, guests will be able to walk around Coronation, Rosamund and Victoria Street - like a true resident of Weatherfield! Rita Sullivan, eat your heart out.
The one night stay is scheduled for October 2nd 2021, and will be made available to book on 26th May via the Airbnb platform.
The unique opportunity arose when ITV soap bosses teamed up with Airbnb celebration of pubs being able to reopen indoors as lockdown restrictions start to ease.
The money raised from the booking will go to charity.
Head of Continuing Drama John Whiston said of the prize: "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, added: "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 the nation's most loved 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."
