The advent of digital photography has rendered the film processing lab all but redundant. Here in UK Boots (a huge pharmacy chain) is closing all their labs, if they haven't already done so.
The consequence is that remaining labs will have to charge high prices just to stay in business.
The alternative is to do it yourself. For very little cost you can pick up a dark bag, processing tank and some chemicals.
However, if you want to print from those negatives it's a different ball-game. Now you will need an enlarger, easel, developing trays, safe-light, timer etc. and somewhere with electricity and running water that you can black-out as a darkroom.
Having said that there's a lot of this gear on eBay and probably other such sites, for silly money.
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
