FAQs

The Emmerdale Village Tour will return in 2021.

Why are we suspending Emmerdale set tours? 


As a precautionary measure, and in line with our established contingency plans across the business, we will temporarily be pausing operation of our set tours to enable us to manage the footfall in these areas helping us to ensure we continue to produce these key ITV shows and for the safety and welfare of all our staff, production teams and guests.

What about Covid-19 (Coronavirus)?

We have been following government advice in terms of preventative measures on all our tours and sites (see below for more details). Temporarily pausing operation of our tours is an additional measure to help safeguard our staff and guests

As you plan your visit to us we want to assure you that we are actively monitoring the situation with regards to Covid-19 (coronavirus) and are reviewing and following the guidelines of Public Health England.

As always, the safety and wellbeing of you, our guests, and our team is our priority and we will take all necessary precautions to ensure everyone’s continued welfare. The advice from the health authorities has not changed, so our attractions are operating as normal and standard terms and conditions on bookings continue to apply.

However there are things we can do... read more about them here: a polite reassurance for our Guests.

PRE-COVID FAQs

CAN I DO BOTH TOURS IN ONE DAY? 


Yes! It is possible to visit The Emmerdale Studio Experience & Emmerdale The Village Tour on the same day. You will still need to book both tours seperately and bear in mind the running length of both tours. For example, if you book a 10am tour for the Emmerdale Studio Experience which takes around 2 hours, consider booking the 1pm Village Tour - this leaves you time to browse our gift shop and enjoy a spot of lunch in our lovely café.

Where can I park / nearest car park?

The Emmerdale Studio Experience: There is limited street parking in the vicinity. If you are driving to the attraction, we advise you use a car park for the duration of your stay. The nearest car park is the Leeds City Council pay and display car park on Burley Road, just in front of the Emmerdale Studio Experience. Alternative parking can be found at Kirkstall Road, LS3 1JA just around the corner and a 7 minute walk from the experience.

Emmerdale The Village Tour: Your journey starts at The Emmerdale Studio Experience, from where you will get our coach transfer to the closed set.

The Emmerdale Studio Experience: Your guided studio tour will take approximately two hours, however please allow extra time to visit our lovely cafe & browse our gift shop.
Please arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled tour time.

Emmerdale The Village Tour: Please allow approximately 3.5 hours for your visit. This will include your complimentary coach transfers to and from the meeting point at Emmerdale Studio Experience.

Is the experience suitable for children? 

Although we welcome children, this is a 2-hour fully-guided tour and some of the footage from the show throughout the experience is taken from dramatic storylines in Emmerdale’s history. You therefore may want to consider whether the tour is suitable for your children. Regrettably, pushchairs are not allowed on the tour.

Is there anywhere I can leave my bags?

We’re sorry but there isn’t any secure space for guests to leave luggage or additional bags. We would recommend leaving these at your hotel or if you are travelling by public transport there are left luggage facilities at Leeds Train Station. Due to visiting working sets, there are strict security guidelines regarding bags which can be found here.

For their safety and security, all visitors are admitted subject to a condition that, if requested to do so, they will allow themselves and/or their belongings to be searched before entry.
