Where to see the stars if you are traveling to London

London is a city that fascinates me, although it has some things that I take crazy, as you explained widely in five things that I can't take London.
I especially love because in London you can find everything, and that includes the world's rarest thingsfrom a shop for monsters until a place to gaze at the stars, while London is not precisely characterized by a clear sky (though they have improved a lot since the advent of the Industrial Revolution and mefitica mist that filled the city). In addition, in London it rains abundantly, i.e., that there are many clouds. Then?

lAs yet, there is a place to meet with others who aspire to see stars in the sky. That place is in Regent´s Park, one of the Royal Parks of London, and is in the northern part of the city centre, partly in the city of Westminster and partly in the town of Camden. You can go to him the night of the last Wednesday of each month. The meeting point is the Hub, a Sports Hall of high technology that resembles a flying saucer alien (a very favorable place to contemplate the universe, as you can see).
The Hub is a multi-sport Café included, very popular community center to carry out sports activities. Whatever your age or abilities, the Regent Park Hub is ideal for exercise outdoors. Or to look at the sky.
lkThe collective that is here to watch the celestial Vault are the Astronomers Baker Street irregular (pilláis the allusion to the Sherlock Holmes irregular?). Some come to eye clean, some with binoculars, others with huge telescopes. Because, in addition to contemplate heaven, these urban observer star enthusiasts, they also enjoy meeting and talking about the universe.
And as Ben Miller explains in his book you don't have to be Einstein:
A star party, which is how we call it the of the craft, is an excellent way to contact with the sky; one not only has at its disposal experts to indicate you where to look, but that there is a great camaraderie to offset the inevitable and shocking existential angst that assaults all amateur astronomer.
Obviously, the best places to see a night sky are not found in large cities like London, but in places like Hawaii, Chile, and the Canary Islands, where not only does better time, they have mountains to raise the instrument as possible and minimize the blurring of the Starlight caused by the atmosphere. But see it all from London, I don't know, it should also have his grace.
And it is that lifting the gaze towards the starry firmament, one warns with deep trepidation that the world is only a blade of grass or a grain of dust wandering around an immense cosmos. But Natalie Angier explains that better than me in his book the canon:
Of the seven deadly sins, perhaps the pride which the most varied of antidotes menu available. Do we need a quick infusion of humility? Just go up to a panoramic promontory of our favorite mountain range and look over the vast accordion of Kashmir of the terrestrial landscape, the folds that swell and shrink quietly toward the far horizon, without deigning even to despise us. Alternatively, try the starry desert sky Bowl and keep in mind that, by huge host make it seem the proscenium we have over our heads, we are looking at simple view only some 2,500 stars, of the 300 billion who inhabit our Milky way, and that there are perhaps 100 billion galaxies in the universe, beyond our sight.
