We have a short journey this morning as we travel to Stockport where we meet our guide for the day. First stop is the Hat Works Museum, the UK’s only museum dedicated to the hatting industry, hats and headwear. This award-winning visitor attraction offers two floors of interactive exhibits taking you on a journey through the history of Stockport’s once thriving hatting industry.
We then enjoy a delicious lunch in the Plaza Cinema Café, a vintage Art Deco tea room which has been sympathetically restored to the fashions of the era.
Our guide will then escort us the short distance to Stockport Air Raid Shelter. Carved into the natural sandstone cliffs, the intriguing network of underground tunnels offers visitors and unparalleled insight into life in wartime Britain in the 1940’s.
There will be a little free time then in Stockport before we return home.
