Stockport was the undisputed center of Northern England's hatters trade in the Victorian era. The Stockport Hat Museum is a major local attraction and an educational resource that reflects its importance to the local community. Located in a refurbished, converted mill close to Stockport town center, you can see restored machinery, interactive displays and new exhibits at the Stockport Hat Works Museum. Workshops, hat making demonstrations and hands-on sessions are among the activities offered where you can dress up as an apprentice or try your hand at making felt. There is also a small gift shop and a pleasant cafe offering hot and cold snacks throughout the day.
