Mini guide to Stockport

     

Stockport lies on the edge of the conurbation of Manchester and within reach of the stunning Peak District National Park. Tourists are attracted to Stockport for its rich heritage, excellent shopping and leisure opportunities and wide open spaces that offer an alternative to the large city of Manchester.

Stockport's main highlights include Bramall Hall, the stunning black and white Tudor mansion that is set amid beautiful parkland, and the excellent Stockport Museum in the lovely Vernon Park to the east of town, while an array of walking and cycling trails in and around the city provide leisurely alternatives.

There are also plenty of attractions in the town itself, such as the brilliant Hat Works Museum of Hatting, the neo-classical art gallery and Stockport's answer to the Blitz, a series of underground air raid shelters. Also worth seeing is the 14th century Chadkirk Chapel and the flight of locks on Stockport's canal.

The Merseyway Shopping Centre in Stockport is the place to go for just about anything and there are plenty of local and speciality shops as well as Stockport's traditional market. Stockport has a variety of entertainment options including live music and theatre, while the restored Produce Hall and the Plaza offer good eating and drinking alternatives.

The nearby Peak District is an area of outstanding beauty and great for walkers and hikers, while the city of Manchester has a rich cultural heritage, with its superb art gallery, museums and popular Old Trafford Football Club. Liverpool is famed for the Beatles, football, Albert Dock and an amazing art gallery, while Chester boasts an impressive cathedral and huge Roman amphitheatre.

The M60 motorway runs past the town and there are excellent rail links with Manchester International Airport, which is only a 15-minute drive away. From London's Euston Station there are two direct trains per hour to Stockport and more than a dozen National Express coaches leave the capital everyday. National Express coaches also run services from Manchester International Airport to Stockport, a 20-minute journey.
