Over the past couple of years, Stockport has seen a wealth of independent restaurants, bars, shops, art and more, with the old town gaining a reputation as ‘one of the coolest little corners of the country'. The Underbanks are fast becoming well known for their array of independent stores and traders. The borough, which is laced with history, was made famous in the 19th Century as the home of the nation’s hatting industry. Visitors are able to celebrate the town’s unique history in the Hat Works Museum, the UK’s only dedicated hatting museum. Alongside the cobbled streets and old architecture, you can also visit the 15th Century Staircase House, Stockport Air Raid Shelters and Stockport Museum.

Nestling on the edge of the Peak District, Lyme Park (NT) was once a great sporting estate and home of the Legh family for over 500 years. The house is renowned for its elegant interiors and beautiful gardens, against a backdrop of sweeping moorland with extensive views across Manchester and the Cheshire Plain. Step inside the house and discover unusual objects and strange secrets as you walk through six centuries of family history, including the Lyme Missal, the most important printed book in the National Trust’s collection. The 1,400 acre estate with its medieval herd of red deer is a paradise for bird-watchers and wildlife spotters, and hosts regular guided walks and running events. For a more tranquil stroll, explore the Edwardian rose garden, ravine garden or orangery next to the reflecting lake where a certain Mr Darcy met Miss Bennett in the BBC production of 'Pride and Prejudice'.
