Full description
Relive the horrors of the Whitechapel Murders of 1888 on a 3-hour walking tour around East London. Follow in the footsteps of the infamous Jack the Ripper, visiting the sites of the 5 crimes that shocked the world.

Your private guide will transport you back to the dark and chilling world of Whitechapel in the days of the Victorians, and describe how the notorious Jack has never been identified; perhaps until now!

You will hear how London was rocked by the murders of at least 5 women during the autumn of 1888, and speculate on whether several other horrific killings during the period were carried out by the man voted, “The Worst Britain of All Time.”

Walk the cobblestone streets of Aldgate and Whitechapel, looking for the pubs and churches that Jack’s unfortunate victims frequented. Creep down lonely alleys, safe in the knowledge that the monster is no longer lurking in the shadows.

Learn what life was like in the East End during Victorian times, and the awful conditions that the residents had to endure. Discover the lucky breaks that Jack got, and the police misconceptions of what the world’s 1st - and still most feared - serial killer would be like. Visit the very spots where the murders took place!

After your tour, you can visit part of a medical museum to see some of the Victorian instruments used on Jack's victims.
