0161 is a designated prefix attached to telephone numbers covering the City of Manchester, Greater Manchester, parts of Cheshire and many of its surrounding areas, for instance, Altrincham, Oldham, Stockport and Trafford. Previously written as 061, this prefix then developed into 0161 in April 1995 – a telephone number that is now firmly associated with its north-western roots. Classed as a geographic number – due to the fact that 0161 numbers are allocated based on their geographic location – they are widely recognised and understood by the British public.
The 0161 area code gets typically charged at standard rate and gets categorised as an ordinary landline number. If you or your business is looking to get a foothold in the north-west market, buying an 0161 number is the perfect start.
