    Guess my accent!

    Can anyone guess where I'm from? I was basically playing with Vocaroo and recording a random story (I was making it up as I went along, so please don't judge the content ), but I'd be interested in hearing opinions about where you think my accent comes from.

    Have a great day!

    Re: Guess my accent!

    It sounds like Estuary English to me - you mix standard English pronunciation with features from London English like the glottal stop - so I imagine you're from SE England.

    Northampton, Northamptonshire... Somewhere around that region, I suppose.
