Went on the tour last night and it was superb. John showed a complete mastery of the subject. He explained the murders, and the East End of the time, in an entertaining but also sympathetic way. Very enjoyable and informative. Well done John and Discovery Tours and Events Ltd.!

If you want to delve into the history and myth of Jack the Ripper - this is a great way to spend an hour or two! Our tour guide (John) was very knowledgeable and painted fantastically vivid picture of the life in the East-End of London during this time. Good value for money and very interesting!

What a great evening out! The tour was absolutely brilliant and our guide Lindsay was exceptionally knowledgeable and engaging. I think what really stood out is that Lindsay is actively involved in conducting research on the subject, and hasn't just been trained up to do the guides. Excellent value for money. Highly Recommended!

Our tour guide, John was very informative on the history of Jack the Ripper. He also set the scene in a great way for each stop. I loved the simplicity of it all. We don't need much but a excellent tour guide with nicely added visuals. He had my friend and I laughing throughout. Would definitely recommend.

This tour was brilliant. Our tour guide John made the tour so interesting and also broke the ice with some funny jokes. He kept us all interested and set the scene brilliantly and made you feel like you were actually transported back to 1888. I would definitely recommend Discovery Tours Jack the Ripper tour to everyone.

Jack the Ripper has been a mythical figure in my life. I've seen all the movies, but hollywood tends to misrepresent the facts. Having a chance to go to London, I decided to capitalize on the opportunity and take a tour. The tour is offered in the late evening which adds to the story of what atmosphere must have looked...

Staying in Whitechapel

Neighbourhood Profile
Whitechapel
Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden squares, these days you're more likely to catch a cutting edge fashionista scurrying through its age old lanes than criminals of any sort.
