Description
On this 2 hour Jack the Ripper Tour, you will get to explore how an Autumn of Terror in 1888 can still send a shiver down your spine to this very day.

The discovery of a body on 31 August 1888 in London’s East End set in motion one of the most famous manhunts in criminal history. For over 120 years, Ripperologists and amateur sleuths have been trying (and failing) to discover the identity of the man known as Jack the Ripper!

Throughout the Jack the Ripper Tour, you will explore the historical background of the Whitechapel murders and their passing into a genre almost in their own right. We will examine how public perception of these gruesome but gripping murders has been shaped and compare that to the reality of 1888.

Angie was a great tour guide. Super passionate about all thing Jack and very knowledgeable too. The company has great customer service too. Even though we were 30 mins late due to problems with the tube, the person in the office stayed on the phone with us to get us caught up with the rest of the tour. Thanks!!

This was a very informative tour. We wish it could have been a little more darker when we took the tour. It would have create a little better ambiance

When my family were searching the many tours available in London for our long weekend; the kids all voted for the Jack the Ripper Walking tour. I must admit that I was quite skeptical about this tour; but I couldn't have been more wrong. It was a great tour. Jeremy, our tour guide, was fantastic. Very knowledgeable, professional, and fun!

Both informative and enjoyable. Our tour guide John was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The cold and low lit street added to the thrill of the trip. Highly recommend!

What can I say! Adrian was an amazing tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and witty. I would highly recommend this tour. It’s great for those who don’t know much, or know a lot and want to get right where the murders all took place. Adrian sucks you into the history and mystery.

Our guide, John, was very entertaining and funny. He was knowledgeable about the topic, and stopped multiple times to encourage questions from the group. The pacing of the tour was good (so people weren't walking for too long). John had visual aides to help reinforce the story of Jack the Ripper. We attended this 6 hours after a 10-hour flight, and had no regrets about doing so. It kept our attention.

My wishlist
