Many of Manchester’s key attractions are close to Stockport, making it a smart choice as a place to base yourself during your visit. Two sights that should be on every visitor’s itinerary is the wonderful Hat Works Museum of Hatting and the much-loved Didsbury Park. And don’t miss the Fletcher Moss Gardens and the Didsbury Golf Course.
You’ll find Stockport’s sporting heart at the iconic Etihad Stadium, the home ground of the popular Manchester City soccer team in summer. The stadium also offers interesting backstage tours, giving visitors a chance to learn about the stadium’s operations and about sports heroes from the past.
Finding somewhere comfortable to stay within the Stockport area is easy. The Britannia Hotel Stockport, the Holiday Inn Express Manchester East and the De Vere Venues Cheadle House are just some of the best places to find a warm welcome and a good night’s rest.
