Depart from a central London location and feel your heart rate quicken as you set out into the night. Pop in your technologically advanced Vox headphones and visualize Victorian London as your guide sets the sinister scene; imagine the darkened alleys of the East End and feel the paralyzing fear of locals who have just discovered a vicious serial killer is at large.
Venture past the dim and dreadful Drury Lane to discover terrifying tales about London’s most haunted theater; see the imposing structure of the Old Bailey, an old courthouse at which countless public executions occurred; and, visit the former residence of the demonic barber Sweeney Todd on Fleet Street, whose accomplice, Mrs Lovett, baked pies containing the flesh of his victims.
Arrive at Whitechapel and disembark your coach to explore some the unnerving murder sites of Jack the Ripper. Hear gruesome tales of grisly murders and discuss some of the prime suspects with your guide, discovering that even Queen Victoria’s grandson was suspected. Stroll past the Ten Bell’s Pub, a favorite social spot of Jack the Ripper’s innocent victims, then conclude your tour with a calming drink (own expense) in an ambient Trafalgar Square pub.
