An analytical solution of four-dimensional General Relativity, representing an array of collinear and accelerating black holes, is constructed with the inverse scattering method. The metric can be completely regularised from any conical singularity, thanks to the presence of an external gravitational field. Therefore the multi-black hole configuration can be maintained at equilibrium without the need of strings or struts. Some notable subcases such as the accelerating distorted Schwarzschild black hole and the distorted double C-metric are explicitly presented. The Smarr law and the thermodynamics of these systems is studied. The Bonnor–Swaminarayan and the Bičák–Hoenselaers–Schmidt particle metrics are recovered, through appropriate limits, from the multi-black holes solutions.
