Try to discover who Jack the Ripper was using modern methods of criminal profiling. Marvel as your guide reveals the man the police should have been looking for during the biggest manhunt in British history.

    This tour was good but not brilliant. In my opinion there was too many in our group approx 35-40 people which made it hard to hear the guide as he was speaking to his left,centre and right so if you were in his right you couldn't make out what he said to people on left and you had to wait on people catching up at each stop.The guide has a big folder which he shows you pictures not impressed with that, a light would need to put up against it as it was hard to see as it was dark .The projector doesnt come out till half way through tour.The tour guide Mick was brilliant very informative very entertaining .be prepared to walk alot. you get to see the ten bells bar and spitalfield market which we went back to next day and explored and loved.if it was a smaller group it would have been perfect.
