Cockney rhyming slang is traditionally associated with London’s East End and characterized by interesting new words combined with just a pinch of the led and the rude.

For newcomers and veteran speakers alike, this survey covers hundreds of the best-loved terms and traces their uses and origins. So, if you don't have a scoob what we're rabbiting about, don't get your grundies in a twist. This your guide to the fun—and slightly filthy—language of cockney.
