Staircase House

Staircase House,Stockport Information
This exciting new attraction invites you to time travel through the history of Staircase House from 1460 to WWII. With the help of a state-of-the-art audio guide, the fascinating history of the house will unfold on a fun, accessible and informative journey.

The entire 18-room town house is fully interactive. You are invited to smell, touch and listen and to relive its history by pulling back the bedclothes on the four poster bed, peeling rush lights, and trying your hand at 17th century quill pen writing. Perfect for a family day or simply to enjoy a unique hands-on historical experience.

Staircase House has an intriguing array of rooms linked by narrow passages and the beautifully restored Jacobean cage newell staircase - one of only three surviving examples in Britain.

Group bookings are welcome both inside and outside normal opening hours by special arrangement.

Events throughout the year.
