Overview

The Magic Hour is a unique magic show in the heart of London. Located near Hyde Park, and following sell out runs at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel and Hotel Russell, this 5 star rated show takes places at the historic Grand Royale hotel. The show, performed in an evocative old drawing room, brings to life the illusions of the Victorian masters of magic.

Sonic is a brilliant showman and kept us enthralled for the whole length of his show. Unbelievably clever and still don't know how the magic happened. Superb show for all the family.

Dear Jean, Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed the show!

Seeing magic performed close up is special, and the setting for Sonic's show makes the whole experience extra special. My family came with me, I'd say this show would suit anyone from about 10 years upwards. Definitely recommend.

Hi there, The dress code of the Park Lane hotel is smart. Gentlemen are invited to wear a tie (though not essential). No trainers or shorts please. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
