Davenports Magic Shop

Davenport's Magic Shop
Trafalgar Square
Davenports was established back in 1898, and today is staffed by professional magicians who are able to demonstrate the most suitable magic for your level of experience and budget. The equipment for beginners, such as trick card decks, starts from £6; for more advanced magicians, there’s everything from trick Top Hats to craftytables. Posters and collectibles (such as a hand-painted representation of Tommy Cooper mounted on a wooden backplate) are also for sale, and there’s a wide range of how-to instruction DVDs and books (including an interesting secondhand section). If you really want to learn the tricks of the trade though, then enrol in one of Davenports magic courses (see the website for details).

It was hard to find the place simply because I didn't realise there was a shopping centre in the tube station, but unlike the view below, I found it to be a great find! I wasn't sure what I was looking for, just something small enough to carry around, and the assistant was VERY helpful, showing me lots of tricks and not attempting to hard sell anything, I came out with six new tricks to take with me to Australia and a very happy customer. www.PartyPirates.org
