A unique walk through London's magical history with a Blue Badge Tourist Guide... and member of The Magic Circle!

From witches and alchemists to tales of great illusionists, learn about the true history of Magic in London, with a magician! Lost theatres, fascinating real-life magic tales and sparkly anecdotes make this 1.5h tour a real treat: a relaxing and entertaining experience which will leave you full of wonder.

I will tell you about a scientist's quest for alchemy, the subversive history of the Top Hat, and the real-life witches who inspired William Shakespeare's writing. I will explain how professional eccentrics have defied superstition on the streets of St James's for centuries, talk you through the history of great illusionists who fought for fame and glory in the West End, and explain how science and magic are intertwined!

My family and I went on Jennifer’s Magic tour of London. We all loved it!
She performed some intriguing tricks while telling us about the known as well as the secret parts of St James’s
Jennifer has such an easy manner and has the knack of talking about some of the more complicated history in a fun way - our 7 & 9 year old grandchildren enjoyed it as much as we did!

What an entertaining tour of London mixed with magic tricks, a brilliant way to discover Theatreland!
My teenage daughter loved it. Jennifer adds little stories to the history which we all liked.
I cannot wait to book the other tours she offers to learn even more about my city.
Thank you Jennifer for your enthusiasm!
À bientôt:)
The perfect tour!

Everyone will love this tour!

Jennifer is the perfect guide.
She made us feel completely relaxed but excited from the start, with her brilliant sense of humour and down to earth thoughtfulness.

The tour is packed with fascinating and astonishing stories involving important historical figures and magnificent buildings.

The magic tricks are superb and also very funny!

I didn’t want the tour to end and plan to go on the other tours which Jennifer leads.

It was a wonderful experience and
I recommended this tour to absolutely everyone.
Wonderful London Magic Tour in French
MarieAndDanAMS, 14-10-2021
Jennifer did a French language tour for us starting in Green Park and ending up near Leicester Square. Very interesting and highlighting several magical places and people that have graced London over the last couple hundred of years. Jennifer does magic throughout the tour which is also quite fun (not to mention impressive). Lastly Jennifer was extremely flexible and willing to work with us to book a day where it wasn't pouring rain. Highly recommended!
Fantastic guide for the British Museum (especially w/kids!)

Jennifer was kind enough to give us a tour of the British Museum and I cannot recommend her more highly. She was exceptionally patient with a reservation mix-up I had (and she fixed) and she was so flexible to meet my daughter and I at the Savoy after our tea, and give us a bit of a walk and tour of the area on our way to the museum. Once there, she helped us hit the museum highlights in the perfect way to make them interesting and memorable for my 12yo who was a bit burnt out from museum overload (and for me as a historian who’d been several times before!) Jennifer was friendly, knowledgeable and a lot of fun. She was also patient and connected so well with my daughter —an aspiring card-trickster. They traded secrets and Jennifer gave her some advice an inspiration. I appreciated her flexibility, stores of knowledge, and ability to bring things alive in and interesting way for us. Thanks Jennifer!
