Best Things To Do & Days Out In Stockport, Greater Manchester

Step back in history on your next day out with the kids, as you discover all the fun things to do in Stockport together.

Have you ever wondered what it was like when an air raid went off? The Air Raid Shelters give you first-hand experience of what life was like during the war in the 1940s. The audio tour will bring the scene to life for you, as you experience what it was like during a black out.

Back up in the open air, Stockport and the surrounding areas offer loads of green space, parks and play areas to explore, and of course, it's not too far away to pop down the road and experience the bright city lights of Manchester.
