Primrose Park camera club has quite a good darkroom and if you join the club I'm sure access to the facilities will be very reasonable. As far as "camera club culture" goes Primrose Park is very left of centre. No competitions! If you want a contact name and email please send me a PM. I am not a member but know some of the prime movers in the club.
