Competition Description

Uncover London’s legendary tales of historical locations with a seasoned master of illusion. One thing is certain, you’ll never look at the capital in quite the same way again.

After checking into the hotel for your two-night stay, you and your other family members will be guided on a two-hour private tour of the places that have defined magic in London. Beginning at Fortnum & Mason, you’ll head up to Picadilly Circus and explore what was once one of the world’s most spectacular magic theatres.

Harry Potter fans can discover the real-life inspiration for Diagon Alley and visit London’s oldest bookshop specialising in mysticism and the occult. Wander into the Sherlock Holmes Pub and then discover the place where magicians from all over the world come to perform.

The last stop will be at a shop that holds the Guinness World Record for being the oldest purveyor of magic tricks in the world. Learn about the family-run business and then settle into your seat for a private 30-minute magic show with magician James Pritchard or Wayne Trice. Expect to be thrilled by trickery that will bring out the child in you.

We heavily recommend taking the next morning easy. Lie in and enjoy a leisurely breakfast at your central four-star hotel. This exclusive-to-Truly magical break offers the unique opportunity to ignite your curiosity and experience London like never before.
