I thought I have a mixed accent from having moved around the country, but the quiz put me 20 miles from where I was born.

I finally got around to giving the test a go and it pinned me down to Suffolk. My family tree takes my paternal line back to Ipswich so the results agree with reality.

Suffolk here, too - which is interesting since East Anglia in general is a railway research interest for me. I’m sure if I dropped down onto any Suffolk high street I’d still sound like a Martian to the locals. ;)

Sorry, HenryJ, I was just taking a sarcastic jab at Google, because almost everything we do on the internet is tracked, and data is collected. My comment wasn't directed at anyone on the forum.

From the original link at the bottom:

"Quiz developed by Verve Search. Please note that Google Analytics is being used on this interactive; anonymized demographic results will be shared with the academic we consulted to help them with their research on accents and language."

This is not academic, it's business. It's a survey, or so it would seem. :)

Oh, ok. Cool.

I suppose that most southerners like Rok-a-bil-e and myself would "sound the most like Yorkshire."

A West London accent,if it exists,as perceived by watchers of recent films,would be better described as "standard received pronunciation", a bit like the old "B.B.C. English accent.
The true West London accent as spoken by the indigenous occupants of places such as Ealing,Hayes, and so on, might better be perceived
as a "type of Cockney accent" by those who think most Londoners are Cockneys.
By far the most commonly encountered accent in the Southeast of England is that recently described as "Estuary English",in itself an invention of the last twenty years or so,which "suggests" affilliation with the "cooler" or considered trendier areas of London.It originated from around the Thames estuary towns.
An example of this might be the television chef Jamie Oliver,who to the uninformed gives the impression of hailing from the East End of London
perhaps,when in fact he grew up in a countrified rural part of North West Essex into a middle class home,not that far from the city of Cambridge.
The actor Bob Hoskins actually came originally from the English south coast area,I believe the county of Dorset,from where people tend to have a "rural country accent".In interview one time he stated that when getting a part in a film early on,that required a roughly spoken "cockney accent"
he perfected that,and thereafter never reverted to his given natural accent.He was not the Londoner people thought,bless him.Great actor.
