About Maskelyne & Cooke

The story we are about to tell you in­volves two magicians:
Maskelyne & Cooke, from Cheltenham, England.

Maskelyne was adept at working out the princi­ples of illusion,
priding himself on the creation of deceptions, some of which are still
widely used by modern magicians today.

Their theatre was at the Egyptian Hall on Piccadilly,
in the fashionable West End of London. It was here they stayed for 31 years,
making it the long­est-running magic show in British history stretch­ing from 1873 to 1904.


Over 100 years later, we are proud to present to you
the Maskelyne and Cooke bar now open on the lower ground floor
from 5pm till late, Monday – Saturday.
Join us for cocktails and in house live magic
on Tuesday, Wednesday,Thursday
and Saturday evenings.
