Very informative and deceptively large museum right in the heart of Stockport's old town quarter. Well worth a visit and the admission fee, would highly recommend.

Didn't expect much from this place and it would have been in the 'hidden gem' category, were it not for good old Trip Advisor. Kept us (family with teenage daughters) all interested for nearly two hours, great audio, well worth a visit.

I went to Stockport to go to the brewery, but as the brewery only takes an hour a looked at a few other things for us to do, this place came up with loads of great reviews and it's free! I checked the opening times as I know some places are shut Sundays, but this places was due to be... More

As a Stopfordian, it is hard to surprise me with regards to local attractions, but this was a treat! It is lovely to get a feel for the history of Stockport, and go past the 60s hideousness of the main town centre. Staircase house dates from the 1500's can be found in the central market district, with lots to see... More

What a great place to visit for young and old. Been to Stockport Market over many years, but never knew what was hidden so close to the market stalls. Staircase House is well worth a visit, the staff are very helpful and you get to take round an audio commentary which explains each room in detail. Lots to see, educational... More

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
