Whose British accent do you like best?

Australian and New Zealand voices may also be considered.

No such thing as a British accent.

By definition Australian and New Zealand accents are not British.

I work with a guy who groups New Zealand, Australian, South African and English accents as "British" because he can't or doesn't distinguish among them.

Some people think Sean Connery was Welsh.

I always liked the Highlands accent myself. Here's a linguistic tour of Scotland for you.

I love George Sanders' voice. To me, he's the epitome of the refined, upper-class British accent.

I like a Scottish accent. Specifically the Glasgow accent like in R7 video.

I like Joanna Lumley’s accent. Very smooth. Her travel videos are great. She’s got the perfect voice for documentaries.

R1 Tell that to Henry Higgins who could tell which neighborhood you were from just by the accent.

George Sanders apparently had a singing voice. He didn't use it here.

After her interview with Oprah, I realized I hate Adele's accent, her speaking voice is trashy.

He sounds like Tom Daley.

@r19, I came here to post the same. Adele is such a good singer, but girl, please don't talk. Her accent sounds like Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady. Of all the English accents hers has to be the worst. It's also interesting how people lose their accent when they sing
