About the Northern English accent

Northern English voice actors or ‘Northerners’ are from the North of England, in the UK. Being based in the UK as a voice-over agency gives us access to the best Northern accents available.

There isn’t one Northern accent. There are a wide range of regional accents within just a few hundred miles.

Many brands choose a Northern accent because it's perceived as being more down-to-earth and easy to relate to. Therefore Northern English Voice Actors are quite popular amongst advertisers. Many UK businesses actively seek them out.

More about Northern accents

Northern English voice actors agency

Northern English accents include:

  • Scouse (Liverpool)

Viking roots

The Northern English accent is influenced by the Viking settlements and the Danelaw in the 9th and 10th centuries.

Many place names in the North of England have roots in Old East Norse language.

The Northern accents are so different from one another they are distinguishable even to non-native speakers. It’s amazing when you consider the regions are only separated by a few hundred miles.
