What You Can Expect

Jack the Ripper Walking Tour of London’s East End

Walk in the footsteps of London's most notorious killer!

As night falls on the city, meet your guide at Botolph's Church in Aldgate for a chilling 2-hour walking tour through the East End. Get an introduction to Whitechapel – Jack the Ripper’s hunting ground – and hear details of the world’s most infamous serial killer who remains unidentified after more than 125 years.

Pass pubs and locations where the Ripper’s victims frequented, and wind through the eerie warren of alleyways where the killer’s five victims were found by horrified Londoners. Along the way, examine original crime scene photos and newspaper clips offered by your guide. As you stop by the scene of each murder, hear stories about the key suspects and victims like Mary Jane Kelly and Elizabeth Strides, who were brutally assaulted with a surgical precision that baffled the authorities. 

Your tour concludes at the historic Ten Bells pub, where victims Annie Chapman and Mary Jane Kelly may have been directly before their murders. Sip on a drink (own expense) as you conjecture and hypothesize about the Whitechapel murders with fellow history buffs and your guide. By the end of the tour, you’ll have a better understanding of the killings that shook the world, and continue to be the subject of intense curiosity and speculation!

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.

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.

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.
