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.

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'm from London and I now live elsewhere in the UK but the accent is cool

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

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

Honest, trusting. Yorkshire folk tell it as it is.

It's like you are mixing British and Jamaican as an accent! - The Ultimate Daredevil, who vows to never see an early spark Plug Entertainment film and actually watch Foodfight! over this

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

11 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.

12 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

16 Scottish

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

I used to think this accent was mediocre, that was until I heard Angela McCluskey singing "In The Air" for Morgan Page. She added life to one of the best songs of 2012. - PositronWildhawk
