Full description
Take a journey through the dark, dirty, and murderous streets of Victorian London. Enter the secret world of violence, prostitution, and gin, overshadowed by the menace of Jack the Ripper.

Join this 2-hour Jack the Ripper evening walking tour and see the sites where the infamous stalker murdered his victims, and walk along the very streets where the crimes were committed.

Hear about the salacious side of Victorian life and learn about the slums and inner-city poverty in the 1880s. This is a chance to finally separate fact from fiction, and get to know exactly what Jack the Ripper did to the women he victimized.

You’ll get to play detective as well when you’re given a profile of some of the most likely suspects. So, get out your magnifying glass and try to figure out whodunnit!

We were fortunate enough that we were the only two people on the tour so were able to monopolise our guide George for the whole two hours. Despite this he still showed great enthusiasm and knowledge and clearly enjoys what he does. He doesn’t just rattle off the story but get you involved by asking you questions trying to make you think and reconsider if you have any pre-conceived ideas about Jack and his victims. Highly recommended.

We had the pleasure to meet George tonight :-) he was an amazing guide on this tour! We really enjoyed the walk with him and heard a lot about Jack the Ripper. Even as a not native-speaker, we had no problems to understand him (for a few difficult words, he was well prepared with the German words ;-)) many thanks, it was good fun! Truely a recommendation to everybody interested into Jack the Ripper.

Excellent storyteller!

My friends and I loved it! George is an amazing storyteller, he really helps you dive in the story, he is very knowledgeable on the subject and very passionate. We were a small group (a couple from Austria and the four of us) so it was easy to get around and the drizzle made the experience even more authentic. Totally recommend it!
