Everyone’s looked at their own house and had a nosey up and down their own street and around the local shops. But now you can check out Coronation Street on Google Street View.
The 360-degree images of the famous cobbles have taken the Google Street View team months to piece together, but they are now available for you to explore as if you were an actual Corrie character or visitor wanting to find your way to the Kabin or Roy’s Rolls.
Coronation Street is the first TV soap to feature on Google Street View. The soap’s producers threw open the gates to the set for the special Google car with camera equipment on its roof earlier this year to mark the re-launch of its website. A Corrie spokesman said: “Thanks to Street View, fans will be able to have a good nose around the set in a way that would have been unimaginable almost 50 years ago when the show first aired.”
Other winning landmarks which can be seen from today on Google Street View include Angel of the North, the Eden Project and Bamburgh Castle. Loch Ness will also be added as soon as possible next year.
