"Northerners really are more friendly than southerners, according to a survey which found the average Londoner has just five close friends.

In contrast, Yorkshire emerges as the friendship capital of the UK - people there have on average three times as many friends".


Must be a riot trying to get one of them to buy a drink LOL!!![:D]

i'd say it was pretty much true, yorkshire folk are very friendly.

i'd say the further up north you go the friendlier they are in england.

Yes the Londoners have the riches and we have each other. I don't know about further up north you get the freindlier, have you been in a pub up Scotland or Glasgow? I hear that's a really friendly place (Mac the knife)

They might be friendly in Yorkshire, but they're miserable with it:

"In Scotland, Wales, northern England and south-western England the average score out of 10 for happiness fell to 7.5 in 2004 compared with almost eight in 2002.

However happiness in East Anglia, London and the East Midlands remained at an average of eight."
