1,260 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.

I had lots of time on my hands during my recent visit to London so I decided to take a long walk along Regent Canal During my walk I approached Paddington Station from the canal side. On the spur of the moment I decided to go and visit Paddington. There he was on platform one! After a few photographs I then visited the Paddington shop which I found extremely nostalgic as it took me back to my childhood. Whilst at the station there are also lots of places to eat. As I visited in the last week of October the station was eerily quiet due to Covid but the bonus of that was I had Paddington all to myself.

Lovely and clean. Staff happy and helpful. Platforms great especially liked seeing Paddington Bear. Trains very clean again staff on trains so helpful. Comfortable journey to Cornwall. Plugs in seats to charge phones etc. Stunning scenery on the journey.

I use Paddington station all the time but due to Covid my travel has been minimal. The station itself is huge and fairly clean, decent places to get a coffee, however don’t bother asking the staff for help. The grumpiest, rudest and most condescending “insert word” on the planet. I hate travelling through Paddington just in case I have to ask their awful staff for help. I want to write something far harsher but it will get removed. Staff at Marylebone and so on seem to be nicer but in general I’d rather have no interaction with staff at tube stations.

Shocked by how little effort is made by staff on this station. Hand-shaking, no mask or wrongly-worn masks, no social distancing. Felt very unsafe.

We booked assisted travel and everything was wonderful. A young man called Jacob met us at the train and took us via buggy to the underground station.
