Manchester

The Warehouse City

Manchester was known as the Warehouse City due to the large number of warehouse’s built in the 19th century, mostly in the square area one mile around the city and were noted for their style and size. It was seen as the first industrial city brought on by a boom in textile manufacturing during the industrial revolution.

The flights from Auckland to Manchester take over 26 hours. Contact your local Global Travel Network Agent to find the best possible airfares and suggestions to design your ideal holiday.

It is famous for its football and Manchester United has established one of the worlds largest fan bases. It has two huge football clubs, Manchester City and Manchester United, which were started separately in the late 1800’s.

It is also well known as the birthplace and base of some of the best bands and musicians in the world such as:

The Hollies, The Smiths, The Bee Gees, New Order, Oasis, Simply Red, Take That, The Smiths and more recently the 1975.

The music scene is still going strong with lots of new talent emerging and it offers excellent venues around the city, as well as the well known Manchester Arena and O2 Apollo Manchester.

Theatre lovers will enjoy a number of great venues and wonderful musicals, plays and performances. The Palace Theatre and historic Opera House are examples of this.

There is also a vast range of architectural styles, forming a remarkable skyline. Contemporary, Modern, Georgian, Gothic and Roman, it is certainly worth a visit. There are nine castles in the greater area, four of these are motte-and-baileys, three are fortified manor houses, an enclosure castle and a possible shell keep. Four of the castles are nationally important archaeological sites given protection, therefore no unauthorized changes can be made.

We have been with the GTN team since they first started and they are professional, caring, willing to assist with any query and will go above and beyond to find fares to suit, even when we have the most ridiculous of destinations. Even in the hardest of times, they reach out to each and every one of their agents to make sure we are ok. Thanks for your ongoing support team.

The Consolidation team at GTN are excellent to deal with.  They are efficient and friendly, and when there has been queries with airlines or airfares, they have always sought answers and found solutions to the problem wherever possible.  The QuikTravel system is easy to use, as well as the additional information on the system around commissions, airline contacts, policies, as well as the summary of recent changes in fares & rules from airlines.  GTN is an excellent partner, and the small personal nature of the team is a good fit for our business
