"In March 1918, self-proclaimed World's Greatest Magician Chung Ling Soo (or Bill Robinson as his parents knew him!) performed his world famous "catch a bullet with his teeth" trick at the Wood Green Empire. Sadly, it didn't work and it him square in the chest."

It's really easy to get into central London on the Piccadilly line from Wood Green Station.

Pretty Victorian terraces within Wood Green's conservation areas give it a family atmosphere...
