Welsh. Psht. Trololol.

The South Wales accent is thicker than North Wales, I think? You could try YouTube clips?

I considered uni in Chester but settled on Wrexham, ferretmonster. Small world, small world.

I am from south wales however I only have the accent when I hang around with other welsh sounding people.

One thing I would say is accents are all about how you say the vowels. So watch gavin and stacey and listen to their vowels, and try and copy those.

Apparently when I was a toddler, I used to come out with phrases randomly in a Welsh accent [one being 'in the cupboard'] - my Grandma was from Tredegar, South Wales. Kind of cute in a South London suburbia toddler, methinks!

Though I am Welsh (and therefore have a Welsh accent) like Mike I am from Wrexham, so it's no good for your specific needs (if anyone is wondering what I sound like I sound like Spike from Notting Hill).
