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

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.

The Contenders

11 Cornish
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

13 Cumbrian

Carlisle, a little bit geordie a bit scottish abit scouse

14 Geordie

Best accent ever!

So friendly

The geordie accent is very canny we invented the train George Stephenson/rocket where would we be without the train the first power source in Northumberland we are so friendly towards strangers we have Hadrians wall we kept the Scotts out of England otherwise we would all be wearing kilts

15 Irish (Northern Ireland)

Irish. Just Irish. Northern Irish is a disaster.
