Trains to Stockport

Once famous for its silk and cotton-weaving industries, Stockport is a key station on the line to Manchester and other northern cities, and is en route to Birmingham, where passengers continue to destinations across the south of England. The 1843 arrival of rail pushed the already thriving market town towards a population explosion. While most of the factories and mills are now designer flats, a wander into town reveals Stockport’s history. Staircase House in the market place dates back to 1460 and, for those that like a tipple, Robinsons Brewery Visitors Centre is a must-see attraction. Stockport station is a modernised glass-fronted building and one of the town’s stand-out structures. In the mid 1800s, though, Stockport viaduct was the talk of the town. Designed by George Watson Buck, it’s claimed that the viaduct is the biggest brick structure in Western Europe. One thing is for certain, the viaduct is a marvel of Victorian engineering and a hallmark of Britain’s auspicious start to the railway age.
