I'm Jennifer, musician, magician and award-winning Blue Badge Tourist Guide. A bit dreamy, often happy, always hungry for new experiences, new encounters, new adventures… Which is why I love guiding, the perfect intersection of all those things!
I am constantly exploring London's history, its culture and its secrets, and it will be a great pleasure to share all of that with you, whether you're travelling alone or as a group, and wherever you're from!
Bring some magic to your London visit!
On top of my range of classic London tours, I have put together a unique London Magic Tour, telling the REAL history of Magic in London from medieval witches and alchemists to tales of illusionists past and present.
Lost theatres, fascinating real-life magic tales and sparkly anecdotes make this tour a real treat: a relaxing and entertaining experience that will leave you happy and full of wonder.
I will tell you about the real Nicolas Flamel and his quest for alchemy, the subversive history of the Top Hat, and the real-life witches who inspired the great William Shakespeare. I will explain how professional eccentrics have defied superstition on the streets of St James's for centuries, and talk you through the history of great illusionists who fought for fame and glory in grand West End theatres. We will learn how science and magic are often closely intertwined, discuss the secrets of real magic... and maybe even witness some :-)
And if you are a Harry Potter fan, you can decide to make it a London Magic Tour in Harry Potter's footsteps, mixing magic history and harry potter facts and film locations!
