A fascinating building with an amazing history. The tour, which begins in the basement, is audio self-guided. The handset is user friendly and you can move from floor to floor in a lift. It took us about 80 minutes to complete the tour. The staff...More

Hi MissChief, thank you for the review :-D the House is fully accessible for buggies and wheelchairs with a lift available and accessible toilets. there are two routes through the House (both see all the same rooms) one of which avoids the stairs Thanks

You will never have visited a museum like this. From medieval times, through Georgian and Victorian, plus there's a free Stockport Story Museum to visit next door, so it's excellent value and a great way to entertain children of 7-12 - and their parents. Please...More
