    There is no such thing as a lancastrian accent is there? I mean Manchester, Liverpool, Preston and Lancaster are all in Lancashire yet the accents are completely different.
    very true. Urgh, Preston accents are especially dire though...

    Mmm, a nice Scots lilt in a gal, either Edinburgh-Borders, or Glaswegian. I'm also partial to a 'northern' accent; Sheffield/Derby kind of North.

    In response to the accents you don't like, how about the ones you do like? For me

    Geordie (girls only)
    Irish
    Glaswegian
    Highland Scots
    Border Scots/Edinburgh/Fife
    Yorkshire
    Lancastrian (even if they are the enemy)

    irish is not a british accent

    A scouse accent on a non-chavvy boy is actually delicious. Oh lawd
    I can 100% agree on that.

    I also love a soft irish accent, southern. Oh and James McAvoy's accent... Glaswegian right?

    Oh and Ben Barne's accent - public school boy. Phwoar.

    Yorkshire everytime... prefer the kinda Sheffield area accent more than broad Leeds but all are equally cool!

    Midlands (Derby/Nottingham) accent always reminds me of home and I notice it on people far more now I don't live there anymore, even though I couldn't demonstrate the accent properly and no one ever knows there is a Nottingham/Derby accent! lol

    Irish isn't British but whatever, it's still a beautiful accent.

    LOVE Geordie accents... and a nice light Scottish burr is quite nice too.. like Ewan McGregor...

    I can stand anything when it's fairly mild. Received pronunciation preferred. Really strong scouse/geordie/brummy/cockney = eew. Strong Irish = not bad. Strong Yorkshire = depends.
