Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

This tour was excellent value for money, in fact I think people would pay a bit more to go. The tour guide was really good and knew his facts! He made it interesting and kept everyone involved and participating. It lasts for nearly two hours and you have a good tour of all the relevant spots and it was made... More

Chose to do the tour as something a little bit different on our latest visit to London. John was our guide. The tour took two hours and was good fun at the same time as being informative. John managed the tour group well and made the experience enjoyable

This was a really enjoyable tour. My wife and I have been living in the UK (I am British, she is Australian) for a year, and we thought that going on guided tours would be a fun way of seeing parts of London that we would not normally see. We have been on a number of 'Sherlock Holmes' and Ghost... More

Interesting tour well worth a go! John the guide was entertaining and well informed. Dodging the other tour groups was a bit of a pain, everyone was heading for the same areas at the same time, however John was very experienced so minimised any real inconvenience

This was the second time I decided to take this tour as the last time my sister wasn't feeling very well and I lost focus concentrating on her, so I decided to do it again as I have a weird obsession with the Ripper story. Phillip was my tour guide this time around and he was quite entertaining. We visited... More

John is an amazing tour guide. Even if you aren't interested in the Ripper, you should go to enjoy his performance. The tour is fast-paced and fascinating. Mu husband and I loved every minute.

There were lots of "Jack the Ripper" tours to choose from , but I have chosen this one due to the small group size and the tour itself was very interesting , well organised and extremely informative.The guide was very passionate about the subject and not just speaking from the script . Great value for money would definitely recommend it... More

Our tour guide was an expert on Jack the Ripper. She is a writer about this topic and she works for BBC! She knew so much! It was excellent! Highly recommended, but make sure you check the weather before you go!
