We visited here today, having lived in Stockport all my life (& worked just across the road from this building for years) this was one place where we have never ventured. Their leaflet & website state that opening hours are 1-5pm but they actually open at 10am during school holidays. Adult entry is £4.75 and accompanying children are free (leisure... More

Lived in Stockport for years and didn't realise I had such an interesting day out on my doorstep. If you love finding out how people used to live, then you will enjoy exploring this house. The concept is unusual because you can interact with the objects in each room, touch the furniture, sit on the beds etc and as you... More

What an amazing building! I really enjoyed my visit. The staff were more than helpful. In fact I couldn't belive how cheap the entrance fee was, considering you got an audio tour around. It takes an hour and a half and I got a free guide book at the end. The amount of work that went into rebuilding this place... More

We were told to visit here by some friends who raved about it and we weren't disappointed. Entrance fee very reasonable at £4.50 an adult and we were given a free book and an audible guide which was very informative as it guided you through the various rooms. Each room was as it was in that particular century and the... More

It's great to see buildings from our past restored to top condition. We also came across pictures from relative that served in the war.

at first glance this appears to be just an information or tourist office........ concealed are the remains of an early Tudor building and a museum over 3 floors with exhibits of local interest specially relevant to the town's industrial past ...... don't miss this one !

My boys aged 4 and 6 and a friend with her 4 year old girl had a wonderful visit here in half term. We virtually had the place to ourselves and the kids were all free. We spent nearly two hours looking round which for that age of kids is a miracle! The exhibits are super hands-on and the kids... More

We took the grandchildren to Staircase house and we all had a very enjoyable time. The room settings were amazing and it looked so authentic. The children enjoyed dressing up in the period costumes that were available. It is a super place to go with kids.
