Who knew this - what appears to be an old house from the street-front - would turn out to be a vast, multi-room, multi-level, wonderful home to discover. I was very much taken by the attention to detail the planners have taken to guide you through the Staircase House. The very informative hand-held audio tour was also very well done.... More

I thought we had almost exhausted local activities for rainy school hols, but remembered Staircase House in Stockport Market. The first pleasant surprise was that it is free for children and only £4.75 for adults. I expected a quick half hour run round and a trip to a coffee shop after and would have been happy with that for the... More

We found Staircase house by sheer fluke one day and decided to take a look around it and are we glad that we did, it's a very interesting place. The audio storytelling is fascinating. We have been back twice as we wanted our friends to experience this gem of a find. They too think that it's a fantastic place.

Have been here a few times with my children and they always really enjoy it, the audio guide gives you a real insight into the past and keeps everyone entertained. Very good value for money and a must with anyone whose children love history. They also loved the fact that they can try on old clothes, sit on the furniture,... More

this wonderful attraction shows a very comprehensive view of the industrial and commercial history of Stockport. I learnt many interesting facts about the place in which I live that I did not previously know!

Our children love it here. They especially like the quill pens and ink in the counting house. It has been beautifully restored with rooms through the ages.

The Staircase House is hidden in "old" Stockport, set high on the hill overlooking the town and opposite the very attractive Victorian Market. A house of many ages, beautifully restored and brilliant interpretation. Audio guides took you all through the house, you could stop and browse, take photographs, sit and listen to "extras" on the guide too. A real little... More
