"Stockport is a borough in the south-east of Greater Manchester. It was formerly famous as the centre of the hat-making industry." WikiTravel
Stockport is a borough in the south-east of Greater Manchester. Historically, most parts of the town belong to Cheshire County. The areas to the North were previously part of Lancashire. Dominating the town is the Stockport Viaduct, built in 1840. Its brick arches support the mainline railways from Manchester to Birmingham and towards London over the River Mersey.
Stockport has a large railway station that lies on the West Coast Mainline. There are trains from London and Birmingham, with less frequent trains from North Wales, Cardiff, and Shrewsbury. Local trains also link the Stockport railway station to Manchester.
Stockport has a good network of public buses, which is the best method to get around the city. The Plaza, located within the city centre, houses a beautifully restored cinema built in the 1930s. It has a regular schedule of films and theatre productions, with the Christmas pantomime being the most popular show.
Stockport is home to the Hat Works, the only museum in the UK that’s solely dedicated to hats and headwear. Another famous attraction in the city is the Bramall Hall & Park, a beautiful timber-framed Tudor manor house set in 70-acres of land. The Stockport Story Museum is a great place to visit if you want to learn more about Stockport’s 10,000+ years of history.
