Help settle a debate.

Best British accent for me is northern Welsh. especially in men but I'm also a sucker for Geordie and a nice light brummie.

Love the Geordie accent

Blondielongie Sat 02-Dec-17 23:30:25

I quite like northern Welsh too smile

What's Benedict Cumberbatch? I like his accent.

I'm calling it early - I think Geordie is going to win the day

Ewan McGregor's Scottish accent.

Scottish

I feel like Cumberbatch is North London isn't he?

Longtime Sat 02-Dec-17 23:32:54

Though of course there is a wide range of Scottish accents. I pretty much love them all.

Scouse on women. Very very very posh Queen's English for men.

ItsAHardKn0ckLife1 Sat 02-Dec-17 23:34:51

Geordie here grin

I love the welsh accent, very sing song smile

Scouse accent. No other accent comes close. Welsh and Scottish are nice too, but nothing comes near the wonderful Scouse twang.

Another vote for Geordie here!! I don’t know anyone in real life who’s a Geordie and I can’t do the accent myself but I just bloody love it!

I have a Welsh friend. His accent is lovely, and he's adorable.

As an American, I can sort of hear the difference between accidents, but probably not the way you all can. The only accent I've heard that I didn't like was the woman who played Bill on Doctor Who.

JollyWankers Sat 02-Dec-17 23:38:34

Geordie because I'm Scottish and I like that they say aye and oot like I do.

Fife or posh Yorkshire, north Yorkshire wealthy farmer to be precise

I’m from Hampshire and love a Yorkshire accent.

Scottish, particularly Glaswegian. I also like a Geordie accent.

KC225 Sat 02-Dec-17 23:40:42

I've been told I speak 'posh' buy think I am London but pronounce everything. I love Scottish, Welsh, Liverpool and Manchester (although not sure if that is a separate accent or just a very clever turn of phrase)

JollyWankers Sat 02-Dec-17 23:42:23

That's simplifying it somewhat, I do like the accent as a whole but I do love that they talk a bit like me. There's nothing like "yupty" as a West of Scotland word to mean a whole phrase though.

JollyWankers Sat 02-Dec-17 23:43:21

AndNoneForGretchenWieners I am fluent in Glaswegian!
