Stockport is quite old, the market place dates from 1260 I think. Over the past 800 years the place has really grown. There is a great music vibe here and it's biker friendly. For those looking for tranquility, there's Lyme Park and miles and miles of cannal paths to walk along

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:good shops - good pubs - good people
  • Cons:don't go near GRAND CENTRAL at night
  • In a nutshell:A place with a long history, and a long future too

    Nice tips you have, had a good laugh at the canal walking tip regarding the 50 weeks of bad weather ;-)
