What You Can Expect
Never identified, the 19th-century killer struck at least five different times in the eerie streets of Whitechapel, selecting local prostitutes as his victims. Hear stories about the prime suspects and the theories surrounding their involvement, as you explore the darkened streets and East End pubs that are linked to them.
As well as hearing about the suspects, learn about the victims like Mary Jane Kelly and Elizabeth Strides, who suffered a brutal end under the hands of the ripper. Gruesome, yet clinically precise, the murders sparked huge media interest and an enduring international notoriety. Between seeing the sites, your guide will show original photographs of the crime scenes, plus newspaper cuttings from the period.
Finish your tour in a historical East End pub – the Ten Bells – a supposed watering hole of the killer. Enjoy a drink (own expense) while chatting with your guide and the rest of your group about the investigation, the East End and, of course, Jack the Ripper himself.
From the 800 year old creepy St. Boldoph's church to the tiny backstreet endearing nicknamed sht alley this tour was a real trek through time. Tales of life in White Chapel before it was electrified really set the stage for the grim crime wave. I particularly enjoyed the vivid descriptions of Poor House living. Book this tour if you like a mix of gritty history and spooky stories.
Great learning small tour experience with a fab guide.
We enjoyed this a lot. We only had a small group so it was easy to hear our guide who was very knowledgable and enthusiastic despite the small group. Good stuff.
Joe was a great guide, spun out the facts and the not-so-facts in a clear and humorous way. He was happy to spend a little extra time with us and all our silly questions. Definitely good for those who don't know much about JTR and Old London.
Was an entertaining tour. Joe was good-natured and full of interesting facts. Was a good way to spend a few early evening hours. My 18 year old daughter enjoyed, too.
Joe, our guide is a very knowledgeable and caring gentleman, we had a great and enjoyable time. Strongly recommended.
This tour is great! The guide gives detailed information throughout the tour and you hear about the victims, suspected identity of Jack The Ripper and gruesome details of the murders along with timelines for the murders. Our tour lasted about an hour and a half so wrap up warm and wear comfy shoes!
