Staircase House Museum in Stockport

Staircase House

Staircase House is one of Stockport’s seven museums and is Stockport’s oldest townhouse. Furnished in different styles, the house illustrates periods from the 1600s to 1940 showing how it was occupied for over 500 years. Visitors can enjoy a hands-on historical journey and discover how our ancestors lived from the 15th to the 20th centuries.

Staircase House is famous for its rare Jacobean cage-newel staircase, being only one of three in the country. Visitors can experience the full history of the house, including its’ renovation after a devastating fire, via an audio guide which is available in English, French, German, Cantonese and Urdu.

For schools, full and half day school trips as available to be booked to engage children in key stage 1 and 2 with the past and sessions can be adapted for special educational needs groups too.
