Is there really much of a difference?

I don’t think there is, other than northerners are a lot more nicer and down-to-earth than southerners.

Other than the fact that southerners are more pleasant to hear then not really, no.

Northern - either really nice or really racist, a great Friday night is a swapping a flavourless chicken dinner with an Indian takeaway on the sofa.

Southern - act more entitled but more likely to have a good time, must have LDN in their insta bio, a great Friday night is paying £5.60 for a beer in Shoreditch because it’s ‘trendy’.

Most southerners just laugh && mock my accent. Their accents are very nice to listen to tho.

Excluding the South West, which is actually an interesting place, aside from Jafaican it's the same accent wherever you go past Coventry. It's one big characterless mush.

I'm not a northerner or a southerner but I prefer northerners. More open minded.

I think the south certainly has its merits but there are massive benefits to the north too... everything is cheaper and people are generally friendlier. But... I sort of prefer the pushy rudeness of my fellow Londoners? :confused:

North London- a place to live
South London- a place to exist in.

Maybe it sounds different to us because we’re more “ informal.” But yeah, I prefer northerners too😬

I have always thought the Southern accent was quite "chavvy" yet posh; like the accent is really posh but the words they say....

i mean unless you speak road. Like up here North, the most "road" you will get is the typical "man" "peng" "blud" "madness". Its generally easy to understand but when I go London to visit my cousins, **** me his mates sound like their speaking another language.

See, I think like where I’m from in north, we tend to sound chavvy.

And regarding slang, we kinda get it from down south don’t we..? But yet again,South is advanced with their slang compared to us.

Slang where i’m from is totally different to down south from what I can tell, saying “peng” would not go down well... :laugh:

I wouldn’t say we get it from down south, either we’re making our own up or it’s from Scotland. I’m very north though.

Southern are flatter, northern have some oomph. Southern sounds posher in areas whilst northern sounds kind on mumsy/farmery.
