Health Clinics And Hospitals in Stockport

Stockport has some fantastic shops and you’ll find branches of most high street stores in the Merseyway Centre. If you like a bargain, the famous market is also worth a visit.  You’ll find a lively atmosphere, colourful traders and, of course, plenty of history. The outdoor market is now 750 years old, which makes the Victorian grade-II listed market hall seem positively juvenile in comparison.

 

The town’s Grand Central complex has everything you could possibly require for a great night out. The entertainment complex has a range of bars and restaurants, along with an Olympic-sized swimming pool, a popular bowling alley and health club. However, if you prefer something a little less raucous, the town also boasts a number of theatres such as The Garrick and The Plaza. These theatres host a variety of events from local amateur dramatics productions to larger touring shows.

 

The town centre provides a wide choice for a day’s shopping, with all major high street brands present. Visit the Victorian indoor market, a fascinating place for collectors and bargain hunters. If you are a shopaholic the massive 'Trafford Centre' is a 15 minute drive out of town.

 

Once home to a thriving hatting and silk industry, Stockport is proud of its rich heritage. The town’s lively past is celebrated in its many museums and art galleries, which include The Stockport Story, The Hat works, Staircase House and Stockport Art Gallery.
