Plaza Coronation Street
The cheap, cheerful and decidedly unfashionable Spanish resort of Benidorm is to name a square after the British television soap opera ‘Coronation Street’. The move is part of an attempt to revive the coastal town’s flagging appeal.
A suggestion that the entire resort should be renamed Weatherfield has been dismissed as “ridículo”.
Do you know of any other Coronation Streets? Here in Canada, there’s a Coronation Street in Duncan, British Columbia, a Coronation Street in Regina, Saskatchewan, and a Coronation Street in St. John’s, Newfoundland.
