"Phone calls within the..." Manchester Local Custom Tip by caprice4u2

Manchester Local Customs: 52 reviews and 50 photos


<font color=red>
<BR>Phone calls within the UK
All numbers in the UK have an area code starting with 01, and then a local number. For local calls within the area you omit the area code, eg the Greater Manchester code is 0161 - omit the 0161 when calling from inside the area but dial it when calling from outside the Manchester area.

Here are some useful numbers worth noting:

International Operator Assistance

at 50p for up to two enquiries)
