Market Hall

“My family and I recently moved to the area and I had no idea Stockport had so much heritage. I work in offices close to the town centre and have had great fun bringing the family here and discovering the old town, the market hall and the old Staircase House. The children enjoyed following the Heritage Trail and, since visiting the hat museum, I now know why Stockport County are known as the ‘hatters’.

“I’m now looking forward to taking a trip down my own musical memory lane at the Strawberry Studios exhibition and bringing my old buddies to sample the delights of Robinsons and the brewery tour”.
