We had a children’s ‘Magic Party’ at Houdini’s for my son’s 5th birthday with 11 friends. It was a brilliant party and amazing magic show - Houdini’s took care of everything and provided a stellar magic show, hot dogs, nachos, drinks and party bags - and also helped with the cake prep, service and photos. Hugo and his friends had a really super time - thanks Houdini’s for a really memorable and easy party!

Hosted my son's 9th birthday party here today and it was excellent. The kids were entertained from start to finish and it was a really good alternative to the usual options like trampolining or inflatable play. Would definitely recommend.

We held our daughters 6th birthday party here and it was fantastic! Sam and Matt took care of everything, all the entertainment, photos, food and drinks. It was a completely stress-free experience for the parents which means we got to enjoy the magic too! If you’re looking for a unique party I can’t recommend Houdini’s Magic Bar enough! Thank you so much guys, can’t wait to come back <3

We popped in for a quick drink and wished we had been able to stay longer. A real gem of a find with good beer, amazing atmosphere and incredible magic. We will rerun to Canterbury simply to visit Houdinis. Please can you open up in Hertfordshire?!

Was visiting Canterbury on a weekend.
Popped into Houdini’s for a quick drink.
Mathew was performing some magic for a family with a little girl.
Then he went on to perform some tricks with ropes for everyone
Great way to spend a few hours.
We then had our own performance.
Still trying to work out how he did it
If you are in the area this place is a must
It’s a ‘Have to’ visit place
