Corrie tram death episode hotel in Blackpool on the market

Strand, BlackpoolTHE Strand Hotel in Blackpool which appeared on TV soap Coronation Street is on the market with a guide price of £825,000 for the freehold.

It featured in the infamous episode when villain Alan Bradley was killed by a Blackpool tram after hunting down long-standing Corrie character Rita Fairclough who was seeking refuge at the hotel.

A blue plaque commemorating the event and photographic memorabilia of the filming can be found in the hotel.

Current owner Jane Long said: “The hotel was featured again in summer 2016, with reference to the original story line. The hotel continues to attract notoriety and trade as a direct result of this association.”

Situated on Blackpool’s seafront promenade, the modern hotel possesses 33 en suite rooms, a 100 cover lounge bar, dining room with 90 covers as well as a two bedroomed private accommodation and customer parking.

Lesley Watmough of leisure property specialist Fleurets’ North West office said: “This hotel has undergone many stages of refurbishment, and most recently had a four-person passenger lift installed in October 2016.

“This sale presents a great opportunity to buy an established business.”
