Attraction Information

Staircase House is set in the heart of Stockport's historic market place and boasts an intriguing array of rooms linked by corridors and narrow passages. All the rooms have been restored using period colours, furniture and artefacts which reflect the attraction's long and eventful history.

The bedroom boasts a seventeenth century four poster bed, there is a two hundred year old table in the eighteenth century dining room, an authentic busy kitchen, and some historic lighting in the tallow room. There are also rumours of ghostly goings on and the house is allegedly haunted by the ghost of Robert Owten, former butler to the Shallcross family.

Staircase House has been designed to make people feel at home, there are few rope barriers or signs forbidding people to touch objects so visitors can take a truly unique journey back in time and feel nicely involved.

Plus it has been awarded The Sandford Award which recognises and promotes quality and excellence in education provision by sites across Great Britain.
