Top Ten British Accents

The Top Ten
1 London

I love a well-spoken London accent. I don't really have an accent. Many people tell me my voice is very similar to Joanna Lumley's. All I can say is, I'm not a Northerner.

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 a Londoner through and through. East end's okay, but to be perfectly honest, I like the smooth, sexy south London accent. I'm glad this is at the top.

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

2 Yorkshire

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.

The Yorkshire accent came 2nd because 2 member from One Direction are from Yorkshire (Zayn Malik, Bradford and Louis Tomlinson, Doncaster)!

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

Come on Yorkshire, nah then we're salt of the earth people with a story tell! Proper Yorkshire people know what the meens!

3 Welsh

We'll win it now in a minute.

And so, A legend was born.

4 Liverpudlian

Yes very nice accent in my opinion.

Especially if they're singing...

I want to hold your hand...

5 Cockney

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.

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

Apparently what I have. I sound like a Space Orc. Or a regular Orc.

6 Manchester
7 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.

8 Lancashire
9 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

This accent I can accomplish!

10 Northen Irish

Irish. Just Irish. Northern Irish is a disaster.

The Contenders
11 Geordie

Best accent ever!

Just very epic

12 Bristolian

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

Simple it's all the cider we bristolians drink! For tonight we merry be!

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

13 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.

14 Cumbrian
15 Glasgow

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.

16 Nottingham
17 Mackem
18 Norfolk
19 Cornish
20 Brummie
21 Glaswegian
22 Essex
23 Middlesbrough
24 Birmingham
25 Received pronunciation (RP)

It's what Daniel Craig's James Bond speaks with.
