A class of exact solutions of Einstein’s equations is analysed which describes uniformly
accelerating charged black holes in an asymptotically de Sitter universe. This is a generalisation
of the C-metric which includes a cosmological constant. The physical interpretation
of the solutions is facilitated by the introduction of a new coordinate system for de Sitter
space which is adapted to accelerating observers in this background. The solutions considered
reduce to this form of the de Sitter metric when the mass and charge of the black holes
