Opposite the British Museum among the postcard shops and a few uninspiring looking cafes is Aperture Camera shop.
Glass cabinets display an amazing array of lenses and photographic paraphernalia.
Go to the back of the shop, and, as if walking through the looking-glass, it transmutes into a delightful little cafe!

Camera Cafe is small and cosy, with a laid-back, jazzy, bohemian feel. There are shelves of photography books, boards games and National Geographic Magazines.


I ordered a regular tea, but there were quite a few types available, including green, chamomile and brown rice.

The Camera cafe also offer sandwiches…and chow mein!
Recommended – a great location for a cuppa.

  1. This is one of my favourite places too. It is exactly like walking through the looking glass. Makes you wonder how many other places have hidden cafes at the back of the shop.

    Hi Joanna, yes, there is definitely something about the place that you wouldn’t be surprised if the white rabbit passed though, looking at his watch!
