The Time Out Global Dating Survey found that more than a quarter of respondents preferred a British accent compared to people from Paris, New York and Sydney, The Independent reported.
It was chosen ahead of an American accent which ranked second followed by Irish and Australian.
French, once considered the language of love, was in fifth place.
However Paris was still considered the most romantic city or at least the one with the “best dating scene”, ahead of Melbourne, Kuala Lumpur, Beijing and Chicago.
London was in sixth place.
