From a Lockerbie-style plane crash in the 1990s, the helicopter crash that saw characters such as Ruby Haswell and Val Pollard killed off on Christmas Day, to the murder of businessman Tom King, millions of fans have been kept on the edge of their seats over the last four decades with the astonishingly eventful life of a tiny Yorkshire Dales village.

Viewers are now being given the chance to explore the soap opera’s set on the Harewood estate, near Leeds, when it opens its gates later this the year to allow guests to walk its streets – barring a UFO apocalypse in the meantime.

Visitors will be able to enjoy a trip to Home Farm or have a look around the Woolpack pub with a series of guided tours. The tours will be held on selected dates from April 30 until October 29.

The show’s former location of Esholt, near Bradford, became such a draw with visitors that filming scenes became impossible for the production team, leading to the creation of the Emmerdale set at Harewood.

Tours of the TV set were approved by Leeds City Council last year.
