About Café Main Street

The new feature will allow guests to explore an exact replica of one of the most iconic sets on the soap. 

Oliver Peace, guest experience manager, commented: “We know that our guests love the replica sets that we have here at The Emmerdale Studio Experience. What could be more fun for an Emmerdale fan that being able to have your photo taken on the famous Dingle’s sofa, record your own scene in Smithy Cottage or get behind the bar in the Woolpack?

“Letting our guests immerse themselves in all things Emmerdale is what we are all about and we are so thrilled to give all of our visitors the opportunity to take a seat in Café Main Street!”

All visitors will now be invited to enjoy the café set as part of their fully guided tour.
