About Ripping Yarns - Jack the Ripper Tours
We are a small group of Beefeaters from the Tower, who have been doing tours of the East End since the 1980s, using Jack the Ripper as a narrative. We have a number of Schools local and international, Freemason groups interested in the Masonic conspiracy theory, Police and groups from embassys in London. As we are only a small group we only do tours at the weekend unless booked, and surprisingly cheaper than the free tours.

Extremely interesting and enjoyable. Barry was fantastic, knowledgeable and witty (when appropriate). We took our 14 and 16 year children, who found it fascinating. Very importantly, they like to run smaller, more intimate tour groups. Some of the tours that we saw out and about, were huge.

Very interesting, not only for Jack the Ripper murders' information but learning about London history as well. Friendly, knowledgeable guide. We thoroughly enjoyed (even my grumpy teen, who is hard to please, enjoyed). I recommend .

We went on this tour last weekend and really enjoyed it. Despite other reviews - we found it very easy to find where the tour started. You walk out of the tube station and they are there !! We had David as our tour guide and he was full of facts about the Jack the Ripper murders. He was interesting to listen too and also gave us facts here and there about London and it’s history which just seemed like a bonus in addition to the tour ! Well worth the £10 - thank you !!

Spotted a sign for this tour exiting Tower Hill Underground, What a great way to spend a couple of hours in the evening... everything you need to know about Jack The Ripper. Only 4 of us, led by the guy who lives in the Tower, David. Very knowledgable, armed full of facts. Thank you, what a superb value tour!
