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...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...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...More

What a fantastic find and right on our doorstep in the middle of Stockport - who would believe it. A most interesting visit wandering from room to room. No need to look to TV to have an insight into the past- just visit Staircase House...More

Visited whilst passing didn't know about the house until then. We found the house full of history and it is a great restoration where you can walk through the ages and learn lots of facts great for young children who like to explore history.
