Macclesfield is surrounded by an abundance of interesting attractions. The natural beauty of the hills and countryside offers ample walking and playing options: sailing on nearby reservoirs, walking the Gritstone trail or paths of Macclesfield Forrest. There’s fishing in numerous pretty spots and grand houses for the historically curious, Industrial heritage aplenty, canal boats for hire and a Silk Museum to explore. Spectacular one offs such as Jodrell Bank are a stone’s throw away or the dramatic far reaching views from Kerridge over the Cheshire Plains.
If shopping is more your thing then renowned Arighi Bianchi furniture emporium in a beautiful listed building should soak up a few hours, especially if you stop there for lunch .There is a wealth of interesting independent shops and boutiques selling antiques, jewellery, clothes and more and many of the larger ‘usual suspects’ too. If you relish the offbeat, there are several small shops and galleries selling beautiful work by national and regional artists. If you can’t resist a market (and who can?) catch the stalls on Castle Street or the indoor market in the Grosvenor Centre. Once a month the Marketplace and Chestergate throng with bustling crowds at the Treacle Market , a great source of high quality local food and drink and vintage and unusual and hand crafted wares.
