What You Can Expect

Jack the Ripper Walking Tour of London’s East End

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

Meet your guide in Aldgate (east London), and then set off on your walking tour of Whitechapel. Now a cosmopolitan area full of curry houses and markets, the neighborhood was once the stomping ground of London’s most fearsome serial killer – Jack the Ripper.

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.

Exceptional tour. Our guide George was very entertaining and knowledge about the area and the circumstances surrounding the mystery that was "Jack the Ripper". We arrived about 45 minutes early and sat in an M and S across the street with a view of St. Botolphs which was the meeting place. George was there approximately 15 minutes ahead of time and kept everyone entertained while awating the rest of the group. In addition to having a very popular name, as an actor and partime standup comic, George's commentary was very entertaining and informative. My 8 year old grandson, Jason, who did not accompany us on the trip, has since taken an interest in "the Ripper" history. Books and information he has gathered since our trip is "spot on" to the information provided by George. His description of Mitre Square during that era was exactly the way it was pictured in a book my Grandson discovered in a book store. We kept a brisk pace and hit many landmarks of Ripper lore. At the conclusion of the tour, George walked us back to Aldgate Tube Station since he was headed, but we were too filled with adrenaline to end the night and opted for a late dinner in the Hoop and Grapes pub almost directly across the street from the tube station.

We did this our 1st night in London. Our tour guide was Siddy and she was great!! It's a shame that they built over the old crime scenes, but it was still incredible to be in the area of the notorious killer. Siddy was able to recreate the scenes and take us back to the 1880s with her amazing story telling. I would recommend this tour to anyone and will definitely do it again when I go back to England!
