Soaps Showdown: Corrie Vs. Emmerdale

With both offering tours to the public and epic events on screen in recent months (helicopter crashes, murders, residents trapped under clutter), all eyes have been firmly cast on Emmerdale and Coronation Street. With Coronation Street The Tour closing its doors for good in December and Emmerdale The Tour allowing fans rare access onto the live filming location at Harewood Estate, demand for both has reached an unprecedented high. So far bookings for Coronation Street The Tour are at 67% compared to Emmerdale The Tour’s 33%*, but with more Emmerdale dates extending into 2016, there’s a chance for the Dales […]

Les Misérables Hits The Big Screen

An adaption of the extremely successful stage musical, Les Misérables, is hitting the big screen on 11th January 2013, meaning you don’t need a London theatre break to discover what it’s all about. They’ve really pulled out the stops with an all-star cast including Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Helena Bonham Carter, Sascha Baron Cohen and Eddie Redmayne. Door2Tour think that these sound like the ingredients to an outstanding film based on Victor Hugo’s classic novel set in 19th-century France, in which paroled prisoner, Jean Valjean, seeks redemption. To accompany the incredible cast, they had to film […]

You’ll probably find that a lot of the Stately Homes that we have included in […]

A Right Royal Year

Helping head-up the Royal revival is Brit film The King’s Speech, which leads the field at this year’s Academy Awards with an incredible 12 nominations. Among the key nominations are Best Picture, Actor in a Leading Role (Colin Firth) and both Actor (Geoffrey Rush) and Actress (Helena Bonham Carter) in a Supporting Role. The moving film (which we highly recommend if you haven’t seen it already) tells the real-life story of Queen Elizabeth II’s father King George VI (“Bertie”), who suffers from a nervous stammer and is thrust to the throne after his brother Edward abdicates in pursuit of American […]
