Step back in time through a townhouse developed and evolved over six centuries. An excellent individual audio tour which you are able to control at your pace, with guides always available should you need help. All ages are encouraged to touch and try without any one breathing down your neck ready to say "don't touch that" This excellent facility is... More

I would echo the other 5 star reviews on here as they are spot on. We spent an enjoyable few hours here today. I have lives in Stockport most of my life and had no idea how impressive this place is! Thoroughly enjoyed by 6 children between 1 and 9 as well as the grown ups. Very good value for... More

I recently accompanied a group of 5/6 year olds on a trip to Staircase House. I never knew this place existed. The staff were very helpful and very knowledgeable, the kids particularly enjoyed dressing up in costumes to learn about the Great Fire of London. My son has some special needs and the staff were very patient and accommodating. Highly... More

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
