Sometimes people don't say I "have an accent" but the quiz below shows I'm true to my roots mine was bang on, is yours?

You don't necessarily need to post your result/where you're from, just let us know how accurate it was. Maybe you were brought up in different areas, let's see if it can pick that up!

My result (completely correct):

Nottingham

Very accurate for me, albeit it covered a reasonable sized geographic area...But that did include where I've grown up, and also the 2 different places my parents grew up, which would make sense. I use some words they don't have a clue what they mean, and they use some words I'd never use

My mum is from Derbyshire and has been in Nottingham for about 25 years so not too far off but randomly for Scarborough, she's obviously got a bit of a northern twang

‘You are not from here are you?’ Hahaha accurate.

Don’t know how I feel about being matched to the ‘Cambridge/London’ region. Need to spend more time up north

Basically this is only accurate if you grew up in one place

Mine got the gist 100% accurate but bunged a few dots in weird places on the map cause I plagiarise slang that blatantly isn't mine so I can meme on people.

Mine was completely correct too (the area around Gloucester, Bath, and Taunton).

Had to put in some answers though, they didn't have my local word for woodlice for example.
