Roy Walton (born April 1932 in London is a card magic expert[1][2][3] from England who currently lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland. First interested in magic at the age of eight, Roy Walton is a world-recognized card magician creating hundreds of card effects, including his most famous effect, Card warp. He has mentored numerous Scottish magicians including Jerry Sadowitz, R. Paul Wilson and Peter Duffie.

Many of Walton's pamphlets and other works have been collected in two books on card magic currently published by Lewis Davenport Ltd. of London, and he continues to contribute to several English language magazines on card magic (e.g. Magic magazine and Genii magazine).
