Full description
This tour will take you on a walk through the dark and narrow streets of London's famous Victorian East End. You will trace the footsteps and crime scenes of the murders Jack the Ripper committed - be warned, this tour is not for the faint of heart. To set the scene… It is the autumn of 1888, and a sinister serial killer is loose on the streets of London’s East End. At first he is known simply as "the Whitechapel Murderer". But in time, thanks to a mysterious letter sent to a London news agency (a copy of which you will be shown in the course of the walk), he will become known as "Jack the Ripper", a name that will become famous throughout the world. You will see the places and buildings where his victims were murdered and found; streets, buildings and alleyways that have hardly changed since 1888; the pubs and buildings where his victims drank, worked and lived; the doorway where Jack the Ripper’s only clue was discovered; and police photos of the victims and evidence. The route you will take follows Jack the Ripper's murders in sequence. This area is steeped in history, and you'll be sure to learn all about its fascinating stories that took place after Jack's appearance as well.  Jack the Ripper is a gruesome and unsolved part of London's history. Your guide has lived in the centre of London for over 20 years (for 5 years right in Whitechapel, where the Jack the Ripper murders took place). He has his own theories about who Jack the Ripper was...

    The guide was passionate, very dynamic and captivating. I don't know if it's still him but really great. It was an English so a bit complicated for non-English speakers. There are French guides I believe. The experience really depends on the guide because, in fact, we are just walking the streets where the murders took place.

    It was a "fun" tour. Unfortunately we had a large group due to illness of 1 of the tour guides but it wasn't too bad. The guide spoke in detail about what happened to the woman who where killed in 1888. The "Solve the Crime" part was only at the end a question that was asked about who we thought was the murderer. As the crime was never solved you won't get an answer of course about who the killer was. But all in all I liked the tour and the tour guide did it in a fun way.
