I'd say what Dave said, but much of that includes the north of Scotland and while it may be VERY dark there it is also VERY cloudy year long and the cloud pollution defeats the light pollution Well maybe. Being a scot that's where I would go but Norfolk or Wales would be good also. House prices???

The area around Kelling Heath (from this page) isn't too shabby in terms of light-pollution. That said, I've had a couple of people mention to me that the skies can still present their own problems -- what with it being so close to the coast (and also so low-lying -- just that little bit of extra air above you ).joe wrote:I would go but Norfolk or Wales would be good also.
Even where I am (not a million miles from Kelling Heath) it can be slightly annoying. This part of the country seems to suffer more than most from fog that comes in off the North Sea coast. I missed out on the last partial eclipse due to that. It was a wonderful clear day that day, even early in the morning -- but where we were it was so foggy you couldn't see a thing.
Here and here would probably be good places to start.House prices???
