Description
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.

Our guide was very informative and friendly. The small tour size was also very nice. I would definitely recommend.

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.

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.

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
