Staircase House is a beautifully restored 15th century townhouse situated in Stockport’s historic Market Place. The house is famous for its rare Jacobean cage-newel staircase. A state-of-the-art audio guide recounts the full history of the house and is available in English, French, German, Cantonese and Urdu. The museum allows visitors to delve into the past of Stockport’s oldest town house and discover how our ancestors lived from the 15th to the 20th centuries.
