i was recently on a holiday in Albania and really hoping to see some dark skies. But on the two nights we were far from city lights it was cloudy, which was a real shame.

but last weekend I was camping near Eastbourne and the number of stars you could see at night - compared to the outskirts of London - was amazing. I always hate having to get up and go to the loo in the middle of the night when camping, but the reward of the sky view made it worthwhile!

South Downs national park prides itself on its dark skies and you can find a map on their website of where it is darkest.

Best camping dark sky was Great Langdale: you could almost touch the stars.
