The Magic Hour

London's most exclusive magic show

One of the most unusual things to do in London.
Are you looking for something different in London? Want to find the perfect alternative night out? Well look no further.
The Magic Hour is an exclusive magic show in the heart of London.
Following 5 star reviews and sell out audiences at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, it was named in the top 10 attractions in London (TripAdvisor 2014), receiving the Certificate of Excellence several years running. Experience top class close-up magic like never before in an intimate theatrical setting, this show is a blend of the finest sleight of hand which will leave you stunned and amazed.
One of the most unusual nights out in London this magic show reflects the style and opulance of the Victorian masters. At the turn of the 1900's London was full of tricksters and illusionists - a period known as the 'Golden Age of Magic'. The upper classes experienced dazzling sleight of hand in the comfort of their own homes - and now you can do the same. Come and enjoy the strange and the bizarre as objects disappear, time stops still, and the spirits write messages from 'the other side'.
We guarantee that this will be a night out to remember - an evening with a difference that you will talk about to all your friends...
