Stockport, near Manchester, is a sizeable town that was once reliant on textile manufacture, but now has a significant retail sector as an alternative to its more crowded neighbour.
Just 7 miles south-east of the centre of Manchester is the town of Stockport. Serviced apartments here benefit from the proximity of the circular M60 motorway, which rings Manchester, as well as the main A34 and A6 routes leading into the centre. Once an industrial town dependent on cotton and similar manufacturing, modern Stockport has a more balanced economy, including a significant retail sector.
If you are staying in serviced apartments in Stockport, it’s not quite clear what county you will be in, if any. The town was historically in Cheshire, but was then taken in 1974 to form part of the Greater Manchester Metropolitan County. In 1986, however, all Metropolitan Counties were abolished, though the Cheshire border officially remains south of the town.
