Walks and trails

6. Trans Pennine Trail

The Trans Pennine Trail (TPT) is an exciting route for walkers, cyclists and horse riders linking the North and Irish seas, passing through the Pennines, alongside rivers and canals and through some of the most historic towns and cities in the North of England.

At Stockport the TPT has two options: one taking in the attractions of the centre - including the unique Hat Museum and Air Raid Caves, or the quieter route to the north of the town. The trail then leaves Stockport through the leafy Tame Valley.
