England is a small country with a hell of a lot of accents.
But which one is the sexiest of them all?
Agree or disagree? Let us know!
Let’s face it, you don’t want a brummy reading the 9 o’clock news while you’re eating your cheerios.
Nobody deserves that first thing.
A hearty, rum ol’ mystery of a sound. Learn what ‘lush’ and ‘gert’ mean and you’re pretty much fluent.
The Bristol accent is absolutely diabolical

Correctly pronounced: ‘ull
Just don’t expect sentences to use conjoining words…
Far, far away from this place.
If it were a colour it would be beige.
44. St Albans
Know ‘sausage sandwich’ and you’re practically fluent.
The language of old. We’ve never met anyone under 50 from here…
Correctly pronounced, ‘Truru’, don’t you know!
The land of elongated words. Takes them a good hour to say anything at all.
We had enough of this when Cheryl Cole was on the X Factor.
You think Manchester accent is hard. Try Geordie

Controversial perhaps. But to some people it’s just a bit neutral.
Broad, country. Need we say more?
Salt o’ the Earth folk. God love ’em.
Ie exile – and if you heard them you’d understand why…
A truly frightening sound.
Don’t go if you don’t like being called ‘pet.’
A girl at the next table is speaking Spanish with a Durham accent. “Dos cerveza por favor, pet”.
Love the North East

Ditto x 1000
We could listen to the dulcet tones all day…
Some might even say poetic.
A strange breed of manc, scouse and brum rolled into one!
Our advice? Hire a translator – pronto.
Conversation between one of my passengers and hotel waitress.
P: Lovely accent dear, where in East Europe are you from?
W: Sunderland pet.

Pretty inoffensive but when they talk you listen.
Practically perfect in every way.
A complete and utter mystery. Does anyone even live here?!
Anyone have an opinion? Anyone?..
Allegedly the pioneers of the British curry, so these guys are ok with us.
Bit whiny, but excellent sausages.
About as civilised as it gets.
Loud with a dash of mischief.
Bath or Bathe – that’s the question.
Both frightening and fascinating.
Folkish and soothing.
Strange Yorkshire-Lancashire hybrid.
If you can pronounce the name, you’re halfway there already.
Relatively soft and gentle, considering
Not as ethereal as you might think…
Alright, me duck?
The quintessential English accent? We can’t make up our minds.
Or ‘Notts’ as it’s known to residents – who have a peculiar desire to shorten everything.
An unusual blend of North and South.
Technically a city in its own right, and a bloody good one at that (not that we’re biased, or anything.)
Must admit, I tend to point at the item on the menu in England. #SalfordAccent

Increases in intensity as you move towards the city.
Hard to distinguish it as a unique accent as the place is inundated with ‘rah’ like students, all of whom are from Guildford anyway.
Hard to resist the charm of the Queen’s English… if you can get them to give you the time of day, that is.
The London accent will always make my heart melt

There is no competition.
Land of the barm, home of the free – and habitat of the bee.
Yer alright, our kid.
Gave a Ferret some vitamin paste & he ?’d it so much he went bonkers ????
So I said to him in a strong Manchester accent “you’re mad Fer-it!” ????
