‘Emmerdale’ fans are being given a unique opportunity this summer, when the soap’s iconic village opens its doors for tours.

The working set in Leeds has played host to plenty of dramatic moments over the years, and on select dates between Saturday 30 April to Saturday 29 October, fans of the show will be book in for a sneak peek behind the scenes.

The village, as it is now, was purpose-built for filming 17 years, when the grounds that were originally used became so popular with the public that filming became impossible.

The decision to open the usually closely-guarded set for tours comes following the success of the ‘Corrie’ set tour, which came to an end recently.

MD of Continuing Drama and Head of ITV North, John Whiston, explains: “The village set is a unique and special place and Emmerdale is excited to be able to show it off to a select number of visitors.

“I'm sure the public will enjoy seeing it as much as we enjoy working there.”
