This magnificent park, filled with waterways, woodland and trails is the ideal location for an afternoon stroll. It is particularly well-suited to families with children of any age, who will love exploring the forests, watching the many water birds and playing in the playground.
Bramhall Park is a beautifully landscaped greenspace. It sits in the grounds of Bramall Hall, a 14th century timber-framed hall. The park is home to a variety of wildlife. Its woodland and lakes provide an excellent environment for habitats to develop. The landscaping of the park began in the 1890s, when the ponds were created.
There is no set walking route; instead visitors are free to explore at leisure. The map that can be downloaded from this page shows some of the main paths within the park and also those linking to other walking areas in Carr Wood and Happy Valley.
Accessibility and facilities
Several of the paths within the park are level and well-surfaced and ideal for wheelchair-users and families within pushchairs. There are also surfaced and step-free paths from the park up to the hall but these are, by their nature, sloping and so most wheelchair-users are likely to require assistance. For further access details visit Stockport Council’s access page for Bramall Hall.
Several bus routes from Stockport and other locations run near to the park. For those arriving by train, Bramhall Station and Cheadle Hulme Station are around 0.9 miles / 1.5 km metres away from the park. There is also a pay-and-display car park within the park.
