Jack the Ripper Walking Tour of London’s East End

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    As night falls on the city, meet your guide at Botolph's Church in Aldgate for a chilling 2-hour walking tour through the East End. Get an introduction to Whitechapel – Jack the Ripper’s hunting ground – and hear details of the world’s most infamous serial killer who remains unidentified after more than 125 years.

    Pass pubs and locations where the Ripper’s victims frequented, and wind through the eerie warren of alleyways where the killer’s five victims were found by horrified Londoners. Along the way, examine original crime scene photos and newspaper clips offered by your guide. As you stop by the scene of each murder, hear stories about the key suspects and victims like Mary Jane Kelly and Elizabeth Strides, who were brutally assaulted with a surgical precision that baffled the authorities. 

    Your tour concludes at the historic Ten Bells pub, where victims Annie Chapman and Mary Jane Kelly may have been directly before their murders. Sip on a drink (own expense) as you conjecture and hypothesize about the Whitechapel murders with fellow history buffs and your guide. By the end of the tour, you’ll have a better understanding of the killings that shook the world, and continue to be the subject of intense curiosity and speculation!

    We went to the given location at the right time to start the tour. However, no tour guide showed up. The provided telephone number was no help either. We were standing there with seven people in total. A total scam...

    Book Tour. Turned up. Shame the guide didn't. Tried the emergency Best Tours phone number - cannot speak to as human. Auto messages that get you nowhere. They had cancelled the walk and didn't bother to tell me. As I said, COWBOYS

    Our Scottish guide, John, didn't miss any of the dark history surrounding the East end back in 1888, whereas some folk might have been too sensitive hej just rattled off the most gruesome and interesting facts. I like the fact that he told us the...More
