Romiley is an area of the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport, Greater Manchester, England. It borders Marple, Bredbury and Woodley. In Roman times there is thought to have been a settlement along Sandy Lane.

For centuries it was an agricultural area, until the late Victorian era, when it became a residential area, with a small district centre. There are three main schools, Romiley Primary School, and Greave School, both Primary Schools and Werneth School for pupils 11–16. Romiley also has its own theatre, the Romiley Forum.
