From a prior thread: " Leonid meteor shower" Message # 457 a very good web page (below). The article has predictions for large cities around the world.

Article: NASA scientists have just released new predictions for the 2002 Leonid meteor storm.

From the article:
In Europe and in western parts of North America, the Moon will be high in the sky when the Leonids arrive. "That's not so good," he says. Moonlight scattered from air molecules and aerosols (e.g., water droplets, dust and pollution) makes the air glow and interferes with meteor watching. The glow will be less in places where the air is dry and pollution-free. Suggs recommends traveling to the desert, if possible, or to a mountain which rises above the local aerosol layer. "A desert mountaintop would be the perfect combination," he says.
