    There are two places I will go to when I need the highest quality Lambda prints in town, and Metro is one of them.

    My first ever visit years ago I found staff to be unhelpful and a bit stand-offish, but maybe it was an off-day because since then I've found them to be very responsive and friendly.

    They will always try to get your order done quickly if that's what you need. Prints are placed in really good quality packaging so you can even take large prints around on the tube if you need to.

    I use them for one-off purchases and would highly recommend them.

    First to Review

    High quality professional lab offering a full range of film-based and digital services. Same-day turnaround on black & white processing and three-hour turnaround on E6 and C-41 services. Front-end staff are well-trained, experienced photo people who speak 'push, pull and clip test'. Negatives always delivered scratch and dust free in archival sheets. Pricing is higher than high-street shops but this is the place to come if you want the best quality. Superb hand printing from colour negatives. Have used scanning services in the past but they are quite expensive. See website for list of services.

Established in 1980.

In 1980 Ben Richardson and his best friend from school, Mike Trevillion, set up Metro as a two-man operation providing black and white printing from premises in Great Titchfield Street. An energy and passion for the business soon earns Metro a reputation for quality and innovation and establishes the UK's original photographic imaging company.

In 1985 Metro relocates to larger premises in Great Sutton St, and introduces E6 processing at Clerkenwell Rd. Always looking for new ways to best meet the needs of its clients E6 is soon expanded into a 24/7 facility.

By 1995 Metro moves into its new premises at 76 Clerkenwell Rd. The five-storey building has been completely refurbished to provide the most up-to-date facilities, including a purpose built daylight hire studio to complement its existing studios.

In 2007 we move to our current location on Great Sutton Street, 2011 see's Metroprint launched and in 2012 we are awarded Royal Warrant by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.
