How Northern Are You Actually?

You’re not really very Northern at all. Your family have dragged you on a few walks around the Peak District, but you’re in no hurry to return. Think twice before dismissing the North, though; there are some beautiful towns to discover.

You’re kind of Northern. You know how to make a cup of tea properly, and you’ve definitely been involved in a debate about where the North begins before. You know that some of the country’s most beautiful places are in the North and you visit as often as you can.

Reet pet, you’re pretty Northern. You can’t get off a bus without saying thank you to the driver and you’ll never understand why Southerners complain about the rain so much. You may not have tried every Northern delicacy, but that just means there are more delicious foods for you to discover.

By eck, you’re Northern! You’re at your happiest when you’re watching Corrie on the telly and drinking a brew. You don’t consider anything that’s not covered in gravy a meal, and you’re always confused by how unfriendly Southerners are to each other. Basically, you’re mint.
