Top Ten British Accents


The Top Ten

1 London London London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames in the south eastern part of the island of Great Britain, London has been a major settlement for two millennia.

My favorite one

Don't care much for south London accent but well-spoken north London is like velvet on the ears!

I have a London accent and feel so happy when people from the north try to put on a London accent even though they are hopeless at it!

I use to have this when I was a kid. My voice was so high pitched back then... - TwilightKitsune

2 Yorkshire

Do it for Yorkshire!

jon snow

I'm from Yorkshire its an epic place everyone should live there I can't see how London is at the top!

Goodness gracious chicks of yorkshire and scotland are okay but turn incredibly hot as soon they open that mouth - butthurtbastard

3 Welsh

Always gets thicker around February/March

We'll win it now in a minute.

And so, A legend was born. - SpectralOwl

4 Liverpudlian

The sloppy British

I want to hold your hand...

Especially if they're singing... - beatles

Come off!
Ello Grandfather!
I'll crippl' ya! - MontyPython

5 Cockney

I like to hear a true East Ender talking in Cockney rhyming slang - it's like a whole other language. - Britgirl

Because it's Jason Statham! - DunnaNunnaBatman

I wouldn't buy a used car from a cockney but I'd sit and eat pie and mash with them while they spoke rhyming slang. I like it - it's like another language.

6 Bristolian

Weee the best

Gotta be Bristolian because the funniest thing on Facebook has to be Bristolian Talking' Tom. He's hilarious!

I'm a propper bristolian And I think we should all LOVE IT! Cus its right gert lush mates, - Bristolian

I was born in bristol but I live in jersey but I am trying to learn the bristolian accent

7 Lancashire
8 Manchester

I love the mansnchester accent

9 Posh

Hmm...what accent is "posh"? I guess whoever added this must mean, Southern England. My regional accent isn't supposed to be posh but for some reason, I always get told I sound like slightly poorer Joanna Lumley; whatever that means. Well-spoken working-class I assume. - Britgirl

10 Scottish

Second favorite

This accent I can accomplish!

Now listen, don't be fooled by that thick Scots burr; they're a talented bunch, you know. No one but NO ONE is able to roll their tongues round their R's quite like the Jocks can... ;P - Britgirl

The Contenders

11 Norfolk

Its alryte I suppose

Its a rlly sxc accent

12 Scouse

I love this accent, even though I can't understand it! They sound like singing dolphins.

My favourite accent - musical and emotive.

Funny, yet so awesome-sounding.

Funniest accent

13 Cornish
14 Northen Irish

Irish. Just Irish. Northern Irish is a disaster.

Notts n derby accents are the perfect mix of northern and southern.
