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!
After a rough start and not seeing our tour guide we settled and enjoyed the experience. Just tour guide holds a sign up! We were the only ones on our tour which was great as could personalize it, definitely wouldn’t want to goin the big groups we saw on our journey. Overall fun
This was an awesome tour. Our group was small compared to other groups that had 40 people in them. By having the smaller group, we were able to hear more details of the crimes and were able to ask questions and take our time vs being rushed through alley ways, etc. I would highly recommend this tour. We were also running a little behind due to the tube and our guide waited for us, which was extremely nice and considerate.
Other couple did not show....so only us and our Guide....excellent experience....fantastic guide ....great historical perspective and appreciated the guide sharing his own opinion on fascinating topic....our small group allowed for huge interaction....and great conversation....highly reccomended
Amazing tour, would definitely recommend it to friends and family and might even go again. Guide has great history about London itself while he tells the stories of Jack the Ripper - including conspiracy theories and an iPad of photos from the scenes. Ek! You'll get thrown back in time with this tour and get scared at the same time, in a good way. Loved the tour!
This walking tour was really informative. However, most of the places/buildings have been torn down and built over. There are a couple of spots where the original buildings still exist so you do get a sense as to what it was like in that time period.
