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.

It commenced with our group standing around the experienced guide on a cobbled back street in Whitechapel listening to an overview of social deprivation in the late 19th century, which set the scene for the information that was to follow. We then passed sites... More

Excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide who set the scene and told the story without sensationalising it and also while giving attention to the lives of the victims and that they were people, not just victims. All the while being entertaining and witty!

The tour was very informative but the way that Phillip described and delivered the information really painted a picture for the imagination. I'm glad I chose the right tour and would definitely recommend to all.

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.
