Steeped in history, Stockport lies between the cosmopolitan city of Manchester and the beautiful countryside of the Derbyshire Peaks and the Cheshire Plains. The area boasts excellent shopping facilities, a diverse and interesting range of visitor attractions, stunning countryside and a number of thriving local centres.
Discover Stockportís heritage attractions including Bramall Hall, a magnificent black and white Tudor manor house with Victorian additions set in 70 acres of parkland or visit Stockport Museum in the restored Vernon Park. Jane Austen fans can also visit the spot at Lyme Park where Mr Darcy dived into a lake in the BBC production of Pride and Prejudice.
Learn about the origins of the expression 'Mad as a Hatter' at the unique, award-winning Hat Works Museum of Hatting; explore the magnificent neo-classical Art gallery; experience how thousands of people survived the Blitz in the underground tunnels of Stockport's Air Raid Shelterís tours; or walk in the steps of St Chad at the peaceful 14th Century Chadkirk Chapel and Country estate.
Three rivers wind through the area, linked by walking and cycling trails to urban and countryside parks including Etherow and Reddish Vale, the Midshires Way and the Transpennine Trail. Alternatively take a scenic walk along the canal to Britain's second deepest flight of locks at Marple or stroll 100 feet above the leafy Goyt Valley at the Marple Aqueduct.
Browse amongst the stalls in Stockportís traditional market with its Victorian glass-covered hall, sample the gastronomic delights of the restored Produce Hall, drop into Merseyway Shopping Centre or try the speciality shops to be found in Stockport's local centres.
If you enjoy comedy, live music or theatre, then the Plaza, Town Hall and Garrick Theatre offer a varied entertainment programme. Stockport also has a great selection of places to eat and drink.
Getting to Stockport could not be easier. The town enjoys excellent motorway and rail links and is a short drive from Manchester International Airport.
