Full description
Discover the myths and facts behind one of the world’s most notorious unsolved murder mysteries and follow in the footsteps of the infamous Jack the Ripper. In the early hours of 31st August 1888, a man walking to work down a dark lane in Whitechapel saw a shapeless bundle lying on the ground near some gates. Curious, he went over to investigate. His gruesome discovery of a murdered East End prostitute started one of the most famous manhunts in history. Ripperologists and amateur sleuths are to this day still trying to work out the identity of a man they called Jack the Ripper. This fascinating 90-minute Jack the Ripper walking tour will follow the trail left by the serial killer who once reigned supreme in the area of Whitechapel. You will begin at Trader’s Gate, before continuing down Aldgate High Street to Mitre Square, infamous as the place where Jack the Ripper claimed not one, but 2 victims. Moving on, you will arrive at Goulston Street, arguably the location of the most vital clue to potentially solving the case of Jack the Ripper may be found. Traverse Commerical Street before arriving at Hanbury Street, where the body of horrifically mutilated Anne Chapman was discovered. The notorious Jack the Ripper’s Whitechapel murders are as controversial and unfathomable to many in the modern age as they were in the Victorian era. Jack the Ripper eluded identification in his age, and continues to do so. You will explore who Jack the Ripper might have been, and come closer to separating the facts from the myths behind the legend on this unforgettable walking tour.

Interesting tour with some fascinating details. Unfortunately with all the development in the East End, it's not a very atmospheric place. Only a few corners helped imagine the streets and alleys of Jack the Ripper's time. Towering skyscrapers are plowing away the rest. We had a nice guide though she got off track a lot, then back on track. It's hard to predict how good the guide will be but I would still recommend the tour if the subject interests you. Definitely not for kids though!!!

This was a birthday treat for my Mum. She’s really likes the mystery of Jack the Ripper. Me on the other hand I don’t have an interest- however I am now. The tour was brilliant. Our guide was very knowledgeable and a passionate historian in this area. The tour was an hour and half. Could of gone on for longer I would of been happy about that. Five stars!

The tour was nice, the guide knew what he was talking about. The thing is tho', there is very little that remains from the Victorian era in Whitechapel. If you, like me, know a little about Jack the Ripper already, it's not worth the money. The locations of the murders can be googled and the story doesn't add anything to what you already know.
