The Staircase House is a barrier-free, hands-on historical journey that will transport you through centuries of heritage and history.

Get the chance to smell, touch, listen and relive history by pulling back the bedclothes on the four-poster bed, peeling rushlights, and trying your hand at 17th-century quill pen writing. Uncover the past of Stockport’s oldest townhouse and discover how our ancestors lived from the 15th to the 20th century. The Jacobean cage-newel staircase is so rare that this one is 1 of 3 of the only surviving staircases of its kind. So if you are a bit of a history buff or maybe you’re just looking for something a bit different to do, head to the Staircase House.
