Camera Cafe – Bloomsbury


Tucked away at the back of a camera repair shop next to the British Museum is Camera Cafe a quiet and discreet little place with a few tables and Simon and Garfunkel playing in the background (the soundtrack says alot). The few customers here are total anoraks, wearing hiking gear including the boots despite the fact that it’s the height of summer and we’re miles from any kind of hill to hike. You needn’t worry about being bothered though as they are too busy fiddling with their new 50mm F2.8 DG MACRO lens and taking close-up photos of the floor and a teaspoon, then examining the results intently whilst consulting the manual. Despite being located minutes from the British Museum, therefore being a heavily touristy area, no tourist would ever find it, just the odd camera nerd or UCL student. Not so good to meet someone for a chat as you might get a few shhh! looks but perfect if you want a bit of peace and quiet in central London.
