Manchester has waved a fond farewell to one of its most popular attractions after Coronation Street : The Tour closed its doors for the last time.

The old Quay Street set, where the soap was filmed from 1960 until production moved to MediaCityUK in 2013, welcomed its final visitors on New Year’s Eve.

More than 850,000 people have travelled from all over the world to walk the famous cobbles since the site opened to the public in April 2014.

Weatherfield is never short of a bit of romance and it certainly seemed to rub off on visitors, with more than 50 proposals taking place on the tour. Fans flew from as far as Australia and Canada to get engaged there.

The set also welcomed back some Corrie legends and Curly Watts, actor Kevin Kennedy returned for a meet and greet with fans in July 2014.

The Wythenshawe-born star, who now lives in Brighton, said the experience made him long to be back on the soap, which he appeared in for 20 years before leaving in 2003.

The tour was originally set to close just six months after it opened but it proved so phenomenally popular that it was allowed to remain open until the end of 2015.

Now, as it faces demolition to make way for the new St John's Quarter, we’d like to hear your memories - tweet us your photos and stories to @ChesterChron or share them on our Facebook page .
