Davenports have a shop in central London, close to Trafalgar Square, Charing Cross Station and the Embankment.
Davenports are situated in Charing Cross Underground Arcade. This is the North side of the Strand, opposite to the mainline Charing Cross station. We are under street level.
If you are outside the mainline station, cross the Strand (main road in front of the station). You will see a Starbucks and a Paperchase shop - between them there are some stairs going into the underground arcade. Go down these stairs, keep right, Davenports are on the left hand side.
At Charing Cross Underground Station, when you alight from the train, head for the 'National Rail' exit. At the top of the final escalator, go through the ticket barrier, stay underground, turn left, and walk down the arcade. We are at the end, on the left hand side.
We are also close to Embankement Tube Station. Here, exit the station to the left, walk all the way up Villiers Street. At the top, cross the main street (the Strand) at the traffic lights. You will see a Starbucks and Paperchase, between them are some stairs going down into the underground arcade.
There is also an entrance to our arcade in William IV Street and Adelaide Street, as well as the Strand.

It is with great regret that we need to announce that Davenports Magic Shop in Charing Cross will be closing for the final time on Thursday, 30th of January 2020.
This is due to the redevelopment of the Underground Arcade that we have called home for some 36 years. We are looking for a new central London location for our shop, but at present have not found anywhere that would suit our needs.
We will continue with our mail-order web site, which has over 14,000 items available for shipping around the world, including the very latest magic tricks, books, accessories, and videos.
We will also be developing our renowned magic classes, workshops and courses for both adults and children, please see our web site for more details of these, with the forthcoming dates and locations.
Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our friends and customers for your support over the years. We have had some wonderful times, met some wonderful people, and are immensely grateful for your friendship. Thank you all so very, very much.
