Photographica is the United Kingdom’s largest photographic collectors fair and is organized by The Photographic Collectors Club of Great Britain. Having grown from small beginnings, a typical Photographica will have around 100 tables offering everything from Daguerreotypes and images, to brass and mahogany field cameras and classic makes such as Leica and Nikon, through to old and new photographic books, collectible photographic accessories and supplies and tools for restoration. Alongside the traditional camera types and marques you will find more recent areas of collecting interest, including Lomography items, pinhole cameras, modern stereo equipment & publications and plenty of brand new film emulsions for all camera types and formats.

Photographica is truly international in its stall-holders and attendees and is held in central London at the The Royal National Hotel, 38-51 Bedford Way, London WC1H 0DG. The 2024 event took place on Sunday 19th May.

We had record numbers of visitors and the sales tables were busy all day! 

The hotel is a 3 minute walk from Russell Square underground station, less than 10 minutes walk from Euston station and less than 15 minutes walk from Kings Cross and St Pancras stations. We hope this improved access, when compared to Victoria, will attract new visitors.

PCCGB members get free entry, but Photographica is open to the public and non-members for an £8 entry fee.

There is of course a club table where non members can view copies of Photographica World and Tailboard, and can join the PCCGB – and get your entrance fee back as a bonus!
