We've been looking forward to this for ages and wow it didn't disappoint. Despite the dreadful weather our tour was so interesting and brilliantly presented by our guide John, who told it like it was and definitely no need for silly fancy dress. He was informative, open to question and very respectful of the victims. Thoroughly recommended! Bravo John your... More

Our tour guide, John, was great! Very knowledgable, and made the tour exciting and fun. He was very courteous, making sure to give people the option of looking at the gruesome photos instead of just showing them up in the air. I didn't know anything about Jack the Ripper before the tour, and I'm really interested in learning more about... More

I attended the Jack the Ripper tour on 31st January at 7pm. John Bennett was our tour guide and he was excellent. After a quick pint or two in the White Hart next to Aldgate East tube station we made our way to find the tour group. We were met by John and ticked off the guest list. There was... More

We attended the tour Saturday 30th January at 7pm. From reading all the fantastic reviews i can only say I wished we'd had John as our guide, our particular guide seemed more interested in talking about his 30 years in the guide business, his credentials and other cities he had worked as a guide, which first made me suspicious he...

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.
