The UK prepares to reopen the Stockport Pyramid, the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’

A pyramid in northern England called the “Eighth Wonder of the World” is set to be given a new lease of life and reopen to the public.

When one thinks of pyramids, Egypt comes to mind, but the UK hosts its very own pyramid within Stockport.

This remarkable building was home to the The Co-operative Bank’s call center, but after it relocated headquarters in 2018 the Stockport Pyramid has remained empty.

Originally part of a plan to create England’s own Valley of the Kings in Manchester, development issues left the Stockport Pyramid as the sole remnant of this project. The Co-operative Bank ended up paying for its construction, which was completed in 1992.

The bank did not use it until 1995, when it moved its call center into the building.

Now, an Indian restaurant chain called Royal Nawaab is seeking to restore it and create a celebration hall there, making the pyramid their third location in England.

The restaurant’s founder, Mehboob Hussain, says he wants to breathe new life into the building by providing an unforgettable dining experience before next summer.

Speaking to Place North West, he explained that, “We hope to breathe life into this iconic building, bringing with it significant investment and creating job opportunities in the Stockport and Greater Manchester area. We have received a positive response to our plans from local residents and the media.”

“It is truly an iconic building that has put Stockport on the map.”
