A highly sought-after area in Greater Manchester, Stockport has all the vital ingredients to make it a truly exceptional place to call home. These include its extremely convenient location – just seven miles south-east of Manchester city centre – as well as a generous helping of culture, a dash of educational excellence and a whole heap of housing options.
The vibrant town has its roots in the hat making industry, with stunning industrial landmarks and historic sites adding to its beauty and intrigue. These include the awe-inspiring Lyme Park, a Regency-era grand mansion and estate which featured on the BBC’s Pride and Prejudice, alongside the award-winning Hat Works museum and museums dedicated to military history.
Bridging the gap between Manchester and Cheshire, Stockport also has easy access to some of the finest examples of the Cheshire countryside. These include the 161-hectare Reddish Vale Country Park and the truly delightful Marple Lock. But it’s not all just rolling hills and old architecture here. New investment in the town has created a thriving bar and restaurant scene too, which wonderfully complements its many great days out.
