Our Jack the Ripper tour takes place seven nights a week at 7pm. We meet outside Aldgate East Underground Station. We ask you to book because we limit the number of participants on each tour to around 34 people per guide. We go straight into the old alleyways where the Jack the Ripper murders occurred in the autumn of 1888. Several of our guides are published authors on the subject.

My son and I took the tour it was a very interesting tour. Our guide Phil made the tour both interesting and humourus. Phil was very knowledgeable and so made the experience very informative as well as being light hearted. An alternative thing to do when visiting London rather than the usual tourists things.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this tour - I'm from America, and this was the first one I came across while researching, so some friends from my study abroad program and I went tonight to check it out. We had Phil, who I knew right off the bat was going to make the tour interesting. It was absolutely... More

Phillip was an absolutely amazing tour guide! He was both knowledgable and entertaining. Going in, I expected to learn a lot of creepy information and have it be a pretty serious tour, but Phillip made it humorous and educational! It really added a fun dimension to the tour that made it all the more special. You can tell he has... More

John was our tour guide for the Jack the Ripper Discovery tour. He was very friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and was very entertaining! We learned a lot about the history of the murders, the investigations, and the sites on the tour. It was a great evening!

Had an amazing evening with our tour guide John. A really interesting story brought to life by the landmarks and in depth knowledge our guide had. Would thoroughly recommend this tour and will be doing it again.

My family of 4 had a very nice evening with Lindsay as our guide. She knows way more about Jack the Ripper than any person should. She was enthusiastic and entertaining. I am in a wheelchair and appreciate her attention to me to make sure I had a good tour also.

We researched and found a newspaper article regaling the talents of the guide Phillip. We booked a night when he was taking a tour and it was well worth it. Despite just getting over a bad cold, and losing his voice through the tour he soldiered on with gusto, and kept the group entertained with his quirky humour and quick... More

Overall, I want to say that the guide, Lindsey was great! Very informative and knowledgeable about the subject. She appeared to know her stuff and dispensed the information in a manner that was easy to understand and kept your interest. I enjoyed this tour for the most past, but was disappointed that there were so many people. I understand that... More

Staying in Whitechapel

Neighborhood 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.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.
