Jack the Ripper Tour with 'Ripper-Vision' in London

1,238 reviews
Immerse yourself in Victorian London on this one-of-a-kind Jack the Ripper experience featuring RIPPER-VISION.™ Unlike other tours, your guide uses handheld projectors to accompany spine-chilling tales of the murders committed by Jack the Ripper in the 1800s. As you explore the dimly lit back streets of Whitechapel, images of Victorian London are projected onto buildings to guarantee a highly atmospheric experience. Plus, an evening departure time means you’ll experience London at its most mysterious.

Everything you though it would be and more. Goes without saying the Egyptian rooms are truly spectacular. Well laid out covid restrictions as well.

Good exhibition, though perhaps not as spectacular as some of the museums special exhibitions. I would be way about attending if you have concerns about covid though. The exhibition was busier than expected (you still got scrums of people around particular displays) but more pertinently there were the odd absolute moron for whom any form of social distancing was an alien concept. At times it was enough to make me feel quite uncomfortable. The museum could probably do with some more prosvtive stewardonh

Visited with my daughter today and really enjoyed our time there. Everything is well organised and apart from a few bad eggs, mask wearing and social distancing were adhered to. It’s a beautiful building but there was a lot less to see than I anticipated - that being said we had a really good time.

The British Museum is one of the top museums in the world. Not only does it house some of the world’s most important pieces but there is both a depth and width to its collection. The museum has reopened after lockdown however most of the collection isn’t on view (most of what’s normally on view - most of the collection isn’t on view normally). What you get to see is a mixture of the best of the best - things like the Elgin Marbles and the Rosetta Stone - and some things that just happened to be on a suitable, one way, route through part of the museum. Whilst what you can see is incredibly important you can’t see everything that you might want. I’ve been to the British Museum before and will certainly return. However I’ve now seen their post lockdown offering so I’m waiting until much more of the museum is open again.
