If you haven’t had your fill of playing dress-up at the Greater Manchester Police Museum, Hat Works in Stockport (10 km from Manchester) is a must. This museum bills itself as “the UK’s only museum dedicated to the hatting industry, hats and headwear.” Exhibitions, talks, displays and the museum’s guides will walk you through every type of British headpiece, from the pink feather fascinator to the beaver top and duchess hat. There’s also an Internet café, shop and family fun area.
