do people in England look different depending on what region you visit?

for instance in southern counties like Surrey, Hampshire and Sussex a lot of people have what I would call quite a golden blonde complexion, like they tan somewhat and look more similar to people from countries like Belgium and Holland, people from the north west are more pale and often very Scottish or irish looking infact most northerners look distinctly different once you get north of Derby. In the east Midlands and NE a lot of people are pale and blonde in a way that is not seen in Europe as much where blondes are tanner and more golden complexioned.

    They can do, a bit, but it's very subtle. The whole west of England is much darker eyed and presumably darker haired too, than the east or north. I know you were comparing English blondes to continental ones but as far as blondes go, English people are not particularly blonde as a whole. About 20-25% are blonde or blond-ish and not often very light shades like you might see in Scandinavia--except out of a bottle! Light brown and medium brown are the most common colours in most of England (while dark brown is more common in Wales and on the Celtic fringe.)

    No. If you put people from all regions of England in a room, you would have no clue which one they came from until they spoke.

    people up north don't wash much as they have tin baths in the garden that they have to fill with the kettle. Southerner's have running hot water so take baths daily. No one in UK has a shower as that toooo continental. Only sex workers have a bidet.

    To an American these differences aren't very noticeable, but it is nice to learn of the various shades and colors throughout England. People are more sensitive to this sort of thing when it's their own country, whereas an outsider visiting there might not notice these things.
