Stockport museums began a phased reopening in August 2020. Bramall Hall and Stockport Air Raid Shelters are open.

On Thursday 22 October, Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery will re-open to the public.

The Park

As Bramall Hall is located in a country park, there are:

  • a number of steps in the park
  • a lot of flat footpaths, however, there are some footpaths that have an uneven and steep surface
  • a number of woodland trails where the ground is uneven
  • cobbles in the Stable Block courtyard

The Hall

The ground floor of the Hall is fully accessible, however the:

  • first and second floors can only be reached by the staircase
  • floors in the Hall are uneven and there are also a lot of small steps
  • Hall is also quite dark in some places


You can take photos inside the Hall but we ask that you do not use a flash.
