Dating back to 1460, Staircase House is Stockport’s oldest town house. Lovingly restored following a devastating fire in 1995 it is one of Stockport’s 7 museums. The Grade II* listed house is furnished in different period styles from the 1600s to 1940 to illustrate that the house was occupied for over 500 years. It also boasts one of only three surviving Jacobean cage-newel staircases in the country. Visitors can enjoy a barrier-free, hands-on historical journey to discover just how our ancestors lived from the 15th to the 20th centuries.
