How Yorkshire Are You Actually?

You're not very Yorkshire at all. Are you sure you've been to Yorkshire? Do you even know where Yorkshire is? Sure, you may not have the accent, but don't snub Yorkshire entirely - you'll miss out on all the great food. What are you waiting for? Book a train ticket and get yourself up north.

You're not especially Yorkshire. You may have been on a couple of day trips to York and Leeds, but calling sweets "spice" and walking down "snickets" are alien to you. Don't worry about it though. There's plenty of time for you to discover Yorkshire. Book yourself a trip. You won't regret it.

Ey up duck, you're actually pretty Yorkshire. You might not be from there, but you've visited a fair bit and fallen for it's charms. You love a day out to Robin Hood's Bay or the Dales and might have even picked up a bit of a Yorkshire twang along your way.

By eck, you're very Yorkshire. Either you're from there or you've lived there for a fair few years. And with all that lovely countryside and brilliant food, you can't imagine why anyone would want to live anywhere else.
