International Magic – Clerkenwell


I come here for the free entertainment. International Magic was founded over 50 years ago by a well known magician and is now run by his son who’s a character I can tell you. The pair of men who run this shop are hilarious, they are like an old married couple with non-stop banter and bitching, it’s priceless. One of them is a small cheeky guy and the other one is a big sensitive, shaved headed spurs fan. Within minutes of walking in they are doing tricks for you and they’re damn good tricks too. I love magic, everything about it and this is the place to come for all that. They have books on the history of magic, countless tricks, costumes, instructional books and dvds. Every nook and cranny of the shop is stuffed with some dusty old magical relic, this place just has great atmosphere and it’s really hard to leave.
