North of London
Since you are probably too far south to see them except on rare occasions you are only going to see them if you are lucky.
Even if you travel north there is no way to predict when they may appear
IF you are lucky enough to catch them a dark sky will help on nights when they are just faint.
I have been lucky enough to have seen them several times in my life.
Probably the best was one night when I came back from delivering a load of wheat? and the sky was lit up from horizon in the north right up above us.
Kids were in bed and we got them up to have a look too.
But usually all we see is a little action low on the horizon.
The night they were really going it was as those in the north say that you could hear them too.
Could not describe it now but we did notice a 'sound' with them as they raced up the sky.
I think there may be some services that alert you to them but they only have an hour or two notice so will not allow you to drive north to get them in range.
It takes sun activity so if the sun is active a better chance to see some.
