Things to do on a Stockport motorhome hire break
When it comes to motorhome hire Stockport is ideally placed. You will find there are plenty of campsites within easy driving distance of Stockport so be sure to spend one or two days visiting the main attractions that this fascinating town has to offer.
No trip to Stockport is complete without exploring the labyrinthine tunnels of the country’s largest network of air raid shelters while the narrow corridors and passages of Staircase House are always fun to navigate (just watch out for the ghost of Robert Owten!)
To find out about the eventful history of Stockport, a trip to Stockport Museum is a must as is a visit to the imposing Hat Works Museum of Hatting where you will get to see traditional machinery in action and try out some of the products.
On a fine day, few places in Stockport are as pleasant as Etherow Country Park, one of England’s first country parks, although Reddish Vale Country Park and Farm is an ideal stop for families as kids will love stroking the animals. The grand manor house at Bramall Hall and Park are also worth a look and don’t forget to take a snap of the famous Stockport Viaduct before you leave.
Eating out during your Stockport motorhome hire experience
Stockport is home to a wide variety of eateries with cuisine from all four corners of the globe. If you enjoy Cambodian, Indian, Sicilian, Sri Lankan, Thai or Turkish food there will be something to tantalise your taste buds.
If traditional English food is more your fare, nothing is more quintessentially northern as a pie barm or ‘Stockport kebab’. If you have never eaten a pie inside a bun before then feel free to indulge. Alternatively, book yourself on to the Robinsons Brewery Tour and enjoy a hearty meal and an ale at the restaurant bar. There are even a pair of shire horses on site.
Explore the stunning vistas of the north west from your motorhome
Once you’ve had your fill of Stockport and nearby Manchester, we recommend taking your hired motorhome for a lengthy cruise and taking in one of the north’s breathtaking national parks.
The stunning volcanic landscape of the Peak District is a must but if you head further north you can also enjoy the tranquil, winding hills and valleys of the Yorkshire Dales and the glistening lakes of the Lake District. The fells and moorland of the Forest of Bowland also provides great walking territory as well as being home to the geographic centre of Great Britain.
