Interested in buying some Uk and Europe scenery add-on packs, but wondered if they will slow down my pc's screen refresh rate?

Some do, you'll have to research it to see what others have to say.
Most add on scenery is more graphic intensive than default so you will take a FPS hit.

It also depends what type of scenery. If you're looking at VFR photo-realistic scenery, there's a chance it could actually run quicker. When using VFR scenery, a lot of people also switch off autogen scenery as it doesn't always fit well with the new scenery, which will give you an improvement in performance.
