Is the UK suitable for astronomy

All I need now is an apartment is Brisbane and dispensation to live in our royal highness,s oversees land and my trusty BMW then maybe I could buy a telescope and get to see some stars.
...if its something you wish to do then it shoudlnt be a problem (about $5,000 will give you an excellent set up to take long exposures)

A friend of mine simply joined an Astronomical society or club and was able to go on night tours and take photographs and see lots of astronomical bodies and phenomena

Much as I would love to try the antipodean option - I can highly recommend the aegean alternative.  Lots of the small greek islands turn off the power from 1am till 4am.  And an ouzo or tsipouro help keep out any chill.

The best night sky view I have ever seen is from one of the islands of Croatia. Only two buildings on it both of which served booze and food.

Being of Hellenic extraction myself and having visited most of Greece, I tend to agree with you

Nothing like the Πατρηδα hey?
