Stockport is a borough of Greater Manchester, located to the south-east of Manchester City Centre. It is the home to Britain's original hat industry and has plenty of visitor attractions including the Hat Works, more than 380 listed buildings, an iconic viaduct, Peel Hall, Bramall Hall and no less than 14 nature reserves. One famous reserve is Etherow Country Park, one of the first of its kind in England sprawled over 32 acres of SSSI land. Visitors also head to Mersey Vale Nature Park, Abney Hall Park and Reddish Vale Country Park. If you love to shop, then make your way to the Merseyway Shopping Centre, the Peel Hall centre and the Market Place, which boasts 50 independent retailers selling everything from craft beer to buttons! When you're ready to recharge and refuel from the activities, you'll find a great range of restaurants in Stockport too.
