My favorite one

Since that I live in Alabama I have a London accent too almost all of my oral words - Kevinsidis

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

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.

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 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
