What a little gem in the centre of Stockport. Would thoroughly recommend a visit. Allow about 2 hours and is so informative

You literally walk thru many historic periods which Stockport has seen, as well as learning something about the history of the house itself and the people who lived in/visited it. There are a few activities as well, Definitely worth a visit!

This is an amazing house, beautifully restored and you would never believe it was there if you were standing in the street outside. Really enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend it to others.

Delighted with my tour of Staircase House, hadn't realised what a little treasure we had on our doorsteps! Lovely to walk around and see all the different rooms and glimpse into the history of Stockport.

This house is well worth a visit, a lovely little hidden gem in Stockport with lots of history but you won't be greeted with a warm welcome. The house is opened 9 till 5, we arrived at 3.30pm so we still had an hour and half before closing the staff reminded us countless times of the closing time which made... More

An eye-opener. A revelation of the details of how people lined there lives from half a millennium to half a canturybago. Quite fascinating!

As a former history teacher I'm a big fan of museums but even I get bored if the presentation is dry. Thankfully Staircase House is brilliant; you can't tell what it's like from outside and even the first stop on the audio tour (which is an excellent aspect) dign't suggest how involving the rest would be. As you progress through... More

The Staircase House is a must when visiting Stockport. It's the story of the people who lived here a few centuries ago, it was their townhouse and it takes you through various rooms right up to the fairly recent past. It's like being a time traveller and I would thoroughly recommend it.

This is one of my favorite memories with my stepmum who passed just before Christmas last year. It is such an interactive musuem, well recommended
