Londoners: questions on pronounciation?

Jump to last reply

I was shocked to hear on the news the other day that Southwark is pronounced Suthick. It got me to wondering what else in London is pronounced different from the spelling. I would appreciate any help with the following and any other neighbourhoods or main streets in Central London with surprising pronounciations. I know that Berkeley is Bark-lee, Pall Mall is Pal Mal, Leicester is Lester and Berkshire is Bark-shir, but please help with:
Grosvenor: I heard this pronounced once and all I remember was that it was not what I expected.
Marylebone: I have no idea.
Bayswater: Is it Bays-water or Bay-swater, or something else?
Islington: Is it Iss-ling-ton or Iz-ling-ton, or something else?
Aldwych: I thought it was Al-dwich, but I heard an Englishman pronounce it All-dwich.
Vauxhall, East Ham and Newham: Are the h's pronounced or silent?
Thanks for any help. I don't want to be embarassed on my next trip!
