About Us

Macclesfield’s full of it. Silk, that is.

Macclesfield grew as one of the main silk centres of the country, renowned for the skill of its designers and for its richly patterned woven fabrics. Fashionistas will love discovering the story of Macclesfield’s textile heritage as told at the Silk Museum and the Heritage Centre.

These days Macclesfield boasts bijoux art galleries, great shops and an award winning brass band. The perennially popular Treacle Market takes place on the last Sunday of every month and showcase the finest local produce, contemporary art, vintage clothing and much more.

Macclesfield is perfectly placed to enjoy a weekend break in the Peak District. Within minutes of the town centre you can escape to the Peak District National Park and enjoy spectacular views across Cheshire.
